Booked this at last minute for a four night break. "You get what you pay for" sums it up really. Rooms adequate but very basic. Breakfast most minimal "continental" I've ever seen!! We were in Room 104 which overlooked the pool. Very noisy outside until early hours of the morning. Obviously as you expect in the middle of August room...

Location is amazing, quiet but in a 2 minute walk to the old town for the numerous shops, bars and restaurants and beach. If you are looking for a quiet get away then this is...

It also had a balcony, although this was quite small with no table. Reception staff weren't particularly friendly, but were helpful when asked. Location is...

The hotel is an old building and rooms are quite small however they are clean and perfectly adequate. Bathroom was a bit dated, however again adequate and all working. Our...
