I liked the situation, overlooking the seafront. I liked the heritage buildings and the furniture and the gardens. Our upstairs room was large and airy - the a/c did work for the two nights we were there - and I liked the big table and chairs on the glassed-in balcony. All the windows opened and the sea breeze blew in - admittedly with mosquitoes... I also liked the large bathroom, despite/because of the period fixtures and fittings! We were certainly not tempted to eat there, other than the mediocre breakfasts, but there was an excellent restaurant a short walk away. The service was very variable. Smart and luxurious it certainly isn't, but I'm glad we stayed there, though two nights were enough! The funniest thing was the 'guide' the hotel provided us with one day: he knew nothing! Armed with the Rough Guide, we knew far more than he did!
