We stayed here on the advice of locals, having found ourselves in other (dreadful) accommodation - and what a real treat it was! Set back a little from the main street leading into town, it is in a quiet yet convenient location - especially handy for the bus station. The room was a decent size, spotlessly clean, with fridge, simple cooking facilities and fair-sized balcony. Our room had views towards the sea, but not what I'd call a real 'sea view'. There were copious amounts of hot water (we were there at the end of season, so it may be different in the height of summer), and an extremely powerful shower. The shower area itself was small, if you used the shower curtain, however, we tended to leave it open, as the whole bathroom was 'wet-room' style, and this gave more space. Best of all was quality of the staff - this is a family run business. We dealt with the owner, Julia - her English was excellent, and she couldn't have been nicer - in fact, the first thing that happened on arrival was that home-made cup-cakes were put in our hands, and we didn't look back from that point onwards! We'll definitely be back.
