The rooms were tidy. Noisy surroundings, felt unsafe. Retirement Hotel with old disabled permanent residents. We booked 2 double rooms, one room had only facilities for one person (1 glass, 1 coffee mug, 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel) Toilet didn't flush, no warm water. No one available to ask for assistance.

This is not a safe area, when i arrived, I wanted my money back, and they refused, had to pay for my stay, and booked in somewhere else. There was a huge argument, i booked through a travel agent who booked through another agent, but no one could help me.

The rooms are filthy. The bedding was wet. The bathroom was dirty. Could not even spend the night it was to filthy. Also when i tried to contact the company that rents after the properties to lay a complaint, i did not receive a word back from them. They do not answer calls or emails.

I don't think I can ever book with your agent again. The rooms and communication is extremely horrible. I should've stayed at my home. The standard rooms are completely bad. If I had more money I was gonna book elsewhere. I booked with you via Parkview coz I used Parkview early this year.

Staying in this hotel was an unpleasant experience. The building is old and many parts are in a state of disrepair. The place is a cross between an old people's home and a monument to the 1960s. The desk staff were indifferent and unhelpful. I cannot recommend the place to anyone. It may be OK for locals but should not...

My daughter and I stayed here last weekend. The room is huge, the bathrooms modern and the kitchenette well equipped. We have found a gem situated a block from the sea. My only complaint is that there was only one towel. I requested another, but this never happened.
