In all honesty, we never made it to the hotel, but my sister did and we had so much trouble cancelling our booking that I thought it was worth a review. My sister arrived on Friday night and we were due to arrive on Saturday. When my sister called me Friday night and said not to expect too much from...

We stayed here for 3 nights from 19th May. Having stayed before we knew what to expect, although found some changes. Check in at reception was fine but we found them not so helpful on further occasions, seemed to be hit & miss as to who attended to you. A couple of ladies very good, rest left a lot to...

Went for a weekend break Friday to Monday. Check-in was well organised. No doubles available so we had a twin room. Very basic facilities. The beds were so narrow more suitable for children. I fell out one night! Tea/coffee making facilities and TV. If you want hairdryer you have to request one from reception (if they have any spare). Soap...

Very cheap and cheerful, you get what you pay for.rooms clean but basic. Plenty to eat at breakfast, serve yourself buffet. Rooms can be quite noisy at night, walls paper thin! We had standard room, but upgrading next time. If you have a glass of wine in bar be prepared to have it in a tumbler. The bar areas have...

Check-in took a while and you have to pay for parking. The rooms haven't been updated since the 70's, most items of furniture were broken. Any repairs that were attempted have been done by someone with no skills or experience. Boiling hot room, no air conditioning, window only opens a fraction and despite it claiming to be 'a room with...

I tried to ignore the previous bad feedback and I trusted the pictures. Feel like 2 star hotel, the conditions in the room were very poor. Paid extra for seaview and got a room facing an advert panel, so no seaview. The food at the cantine looks far better... I decide to have dinner in a different place.
