Thanks very much for your good review. It is apparent that we do try and keep our standards at a high level, but of course we know that it is difficult to please all guests. We did have an issue with a noisy room while you were there. Other guests were also upset by these young guys who played music...

Amazing staff, amazing rooms, amazing breakfast, I can recommend this for anyone, old and young. Walking distance from the promenade, pretty central and easy to find. A must when you are on a business trip and looking for a good nights rest. These guys really have it all figured out.

A very clean and decent place to stay with very friendly and lovely staff. Would definitely go back and stay at the same place. Good sized rooms with the front ones having very beautiful views. An addition of bath tubs to the showers would be awesome

Travelling solo in May 2016, I spent there a few nights. Location was perfect for its walking distance to the waterfront. The owner was extremely helpful in giving some tips. I would definitely recommended this place.
