Positive Reviews

Magnificent breakfast.

Brilliant quality and choice; that porridge is to die for! All served efficiently and by friendly staff.

Really comfortable and clean.

Rooms are spotlessly clean and welcoming. Quite often they are let down by neglect in the bathroom areas. Not here, though; everywhere is immaculate and spot on.

Convenient location.

Not only is the sea and beach just round the corner, but if you are visiting via public transport, it’s only about 10 minutes easy walk from the bus station.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi problems.

Problems with Wi-Fi are commonplace and there’s no escape from them, here!

Absent owners.

They must have other things to do but, unless they are expecting you, prepare for a long wait for someone to turn up. Adding 2 and 2 together, it would seem then that, for the large part, their business is pre-booked with anyone casually turning up being

No pressure then.

Pressure is sometimes low resulting in slow or disappearing shower water. Probably down to everyone using their shower at the same time. It’s only a small niggle and rights itself eventually.
