Positive Reviews

Close to the beach

The hotel’s location just one block from the beach is one of its highlights. Guests also enjoy the range of shops and dining venues in the immediate area.

Friendly, responsive service

Reception staff at this hotel are warm and welcoming, ensuring guests feel completely at home for the duration of their stay. Staff are quick to respond to any issues and remedy them with efficiency. Overall, guests are very pleased with the attitude from staff.

Good value for money

The hotel’s location near the beach combines with the service offered, facilities such as the swimming pool, and comfortable rooms to create a value-for-money option. Guests recommend this hotel as an option for those in search of budget accommodation that provides all the necessities.

Negative Reviews

Parking separate from hotel

The hotel offers parking for guests but it is not directly on site, which many do not find an ideal situation as they have to walk to reach their vehicles – particularly inconvenient when unloading and loading luggage. Others feel security around their vehicles is inadequate due to the location of the parking facilities.

Attention to detail

While the rooms are considered comfortable and clean overall, guests find that housekeeping occasionally overlooks certain aspects. Most commonly, guests miss the right number of towels for rooms or find their room was not cleaned as expected.

Not strictly a hotel

The accommodation provided is more the style of self-contained apartments than a hotel, and shares its location with an elderly people’s home, the latter of which presents something of a negative for some guests.
