    Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast

    Advert said there was a fridge and microwave (kitchenette in the room) We found a fridge on the landing so that helped with keeping lunch bits cool)

    Potentially in a good position close to sandy beaches. Large rooms. Very clean.

    My view is tainted by the fact that although we booked, 6 months earlier, a de-luxe family room with sea views, in this little hotel with a bar...on arrival was told had given incorrect information so we had a mountain view room. I was cross and believe this was rubbish because I had communicated directly with the hotel and paid a 1 night deposit. In the event, we were given a family room with a tacky little side balcony. But as we specifically wanted a large sea facing balcony in the hope of spotting a whale, yes, I was bitterly disappointed and can’t give an unbiased review. Also, the hotel is well out of the town at the end of a residential area. That the bar was closed - apparently they hadn’t paid for a licence - was a real blow and meant driving out to find a bar! The hotel is very quiet and without atmosphere. Breakfast is basic. Swimming pool is postage stamp sized, looked grimy and is sited in a grotty location. Am sure if I had got what I booked and paid for this review would have been better.

    The hotel is situated in a residential area and there is a small forest path leading to a beautiful beach. Breakfast was great.

    A fridge and hairdryer would be nice. The bathrooms are a bit outdated.
