    Good location, and outlook from room (angled sea view). Breakfast included and taken in smart restaurant surroundings. Efficient and friendly check in. Colourful and comfortable foyer/lounge area. Fast free wifi.

    Single very cramped lift. So we used the stairs except on arrival. Creaky flooring, but it's an old building, so to be expected. Temperamental and dated TV.
