Not Again, Unfortunately.
Beautiful old historical hotel. Good view of the beach. Very welcoming and helpful staff! Our room was several flights up and there wasn’t an elevator, but staff took our bags up for us. Climbing the steps to our room was like climbing a mountain. Our room was either a closet or an attic with a very small window; there wasn’t a fan nor air conditioning so the space was ver confining. I sat on the toilet and my knees hit the sink.

will stay again
apart from a few tiny improvements it was fabulous. could do with a row of hooks on the wall near the door (room 6) and we were unable to watch a video stream with the wifi, but it was free wifi and emails etc were fine. will definitely stay again and intend to go next year for sure.

War alles in allem okay :) für den Preis hätte das Zimmer etwas ansprechender sein können. Sauberkeit war auch in Ordnung und das Bett war okay. Die Angestellten waren sehr nett.
