6/10 Good

We stayed in the rear of the hotel called the Beach House for two nights and the room was clean and comfortable. We spent the first night without tea making facilities as the tray with this was in the wardrobe and we weren’t told. Going off to sleep was difficult as there was a constant droning noise from what may be a plant room underneath and/or an air con unit just outside the room window ! We got around this on the second night by using ear plugs as asking for a room move was not an option as the hotel was full. The restaurant for both breakfast and evening meals was very good and the staff attentive. We would stay again only in the sea front part of the hotel.
