Firstly, the location is superb. 30 seconds walk from the train station and 5 minutes from the bus stop. 2 minutes walk from the pubs and bars and 10-15 minutes walk to town centre and the marina. Staff were very accommodating and I was always feeling welcomed. Best part of the stay were the daily dinners on the terraces with...
