Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Guests highly rate the location of the property. It is in a quiet spot but just a couple of minutes' stroll from the centre of town, where you will find shopping, galleries and places to eat. The beach is close too. The good news is that you will not need to use your car.

Free drinks a nice touch

Guests are pleased to find tea, coffee and water are provided and enjoy sitting in the pleasant courtyard with a coffee and reading the paper, or having a port or sherry offered to them by the staff in the evening.

Pet friendly

If you are not keen on being apart from your beloved pet while you go on holiday, the good news is that this hotel is pet friendly. Just make sure to tell the staff in advance of your stay.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing breakfast

Guests are not impressed with the continental breakfast, saying the choice is limited. It is also noted that breakfast starts late and serving time is short, meaning early risers might miss breakfast altogether. For this reason the breakfast room gets crowded, although breakfast can be taken away on a tray.

Not enough parking

While free parking is included, there are not many spaces so guests who do not arrive early find they have to park on the street instead. There is on-street parking but some of this is time restricted so, if you park there, you will have to move your car again later.

Staff service is hit and miss

While some guests find the staff to be very friendly and helpful, others disagree, saying they have not been made to feel welcome on arrival and that staff seemed to be uninterested during their stay. Service is functional but perhaps not always enthusiastic.
