    A few years ago I was taken to the Restaurant for a meal which was great in every way so was disappointed when we found that it was not operating when we stayed recently, on our anniversary.

    Great location. Close to the beach. Rooms are very dated and urgent need of a refurb.

    No one at reception when we arrived, though the sign on the door says reception open till 6pm. We arrived at 4pm. We did receive a SMS about what room we were in. Breakfast room wasn't set up ready for breakfast when we arrived. Very poor breakfast. bread was stale. Fruit.....what fruit. there was a bowl of whole apples...that's it! Key to our room was dodgy. Took a lot of attempts by both myself and my husband to open the door. The rooms were very old and run down but clean enough and tidy. Beds comfy

    It was clean and staff very friendly. The property looked a bit out dated from the outside - initial expectations, but inside was better standards

    Ample easy parking. Free breakfast was an added bonus and our balcony had a nice view, however the glass door leading on to the balcony had not been maintained and it was a struggle to open it. The room was comfortable, as was the bed, but furnishings were very dated. Ok if you are looking for an overnight stay in motel accommodation.
