This budget hotel is great value for money. It is close to the beach/promenade and also to the town. It has a 24 hour bar (not busy or noisy at all during our visit). Our room was very small but clean and quiet, the bathroom was badly in need of refurbishment but again was clean and the shower was very...

We stayed between Christmas and new year, myself, wife and two young sons, the hotel was exactly what we looking for, good location, good fresh breakfast , comfy beds and friendly service, only complaint being the squeaky floors above, but for a quad room for 3 nights at £170 a bargain

This hotel is by far one of the worst I have ever stayed in and I have travelled to many third world countries with better accommodation. Try and get a room with three numbers instead of two and you can be assured of a room that does not throw you out of the window if you bend down. The sockets...

I stayed here for a couple of nights and became very ill with major stomach cramps and vomiting which is very unusual for me. Not very inviting from the outside since you have to enter via a dark bar . Beware because the receptionists are mostly barmen and dont care about the hotel. They saw me waiting for my key...
