Nice hotel in a nice location. All rooms seemed to have a sea view except the lower floors that had buildings in the way. Rooms were adequate with little kitchens that were very handy when on B&B. The breakfast restaurant was authentic, and the food was OK. Usual rolls, fruit, bacon eggs etc. The indoor pool was lovely but did...

It was dark when we arrived as Thompson had take more than 24 hours to actually get us to the hotel by the time we arrived so we were just happy to arrive at long last. What a shock when we saw the hotel in the day light. Scruffy and very run down would be a fair comment. Bathroom was...

We read a lot of the reviews of this hotel and most of them are accurate we went for Bed and Breakfast, don't expect grand reception and corridors and luxury, but the rooms are clean good size with views of the sea and added bonus of a small kitchen area. Yes it all does need a little updating but the...

We stayed here for a week in February - and based on my experiences, would happily come back and stay again Last minute decision for a weeks winter sun break - this came up via Thomson at an unbelievably cheap price! So with the price and some other 'negative' reviews we wondered what we were going to experience ... The...

Was on holiday here from 27/2 till 6/3 and had the most pleasant stay at this hotel which is in a great location. Stayed in room 405 and found the room facilities more than required. The staff were more than friendly and the receptionist was the most friendly and helpful person you could ever encounter. Choice at breakfast was varied...

OK its not 5 star, but you get what you pay for and its great value. Breakfast is good, plenty of room around the pools and its clean. Easy going atmosphere and a great location near the lido. Also free shuttle into the centre. It is however on a bit of a hill if you struggle walking. Definitely recommended.

Currently staying here. I really don't understand the negative reviews. It is in a good location and we have a beautiful view of the ocean. The complaints of the breakfast being poor...I don't understand. I think it is very good! Several different breads, 2 different meats and cheeses each morning, hard boiled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, sausages, 2-3 different fruits,...

Tired hotel but nice-sized rooms. Could not eat the low-quality free breakfast, not could I drink the coffee, which wasn't real brewed. Staff was nice. Location near many shops and bus lines was wonderful. Definitely not a four star!
