Arrived way earlier than check-in time, the friendly receptionist arranged a room immediately. Excellent room, perfect location. Next morning went for breakfast, which included bacon and ham and neither my brother nor I eat pork. Chef was kind enough to substitute lamb instead of bacon....More

Stayed here as 2 adults in October. Overall was a pleasant enough stay for one night. Location was off the Main Street but close enough to walk down to the strip and marina. Room was tired looking, basic and clean. Had all the facilities needed...More

Dear Guest We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and thanks for taking the time to review the hotel and our facilities and services. You're right about the dome above the shower, it's an ingenious invention designed to trap steam within the shower...More

Dear Reviewer, I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us and it's a pity you observed so many issues but only raised one (request for heater which we provided) with us during your stay. I will just correct you on one matter...More

Worst stay anywhere. Cleaners who woke us up from laughing, swearing and loud music. Incredibly basic room which smelt of smoke and damp. Light switches don't work, dodgy main door lock. Demand for full payment despite leaving after one day. One month on the road...More

I believe this to be a fictitous entry and have asked Tripadvisor to remove it via three emails but I have not received a response from them. Therefore I would ask readers to look at the comments with some scepticism and perhaps lay it beside...More

Yes but it was paid. They may have changed the WIFI since I was there. The staff was very nice to deal with.
