Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Hotel was a 5 minute walk away from the beach, which was great as we could walk there in the morning when the beach was quiet. Breakfast was lovely and staff were friendly and helpful - breakfast was brought to the table so no need to self serve especially if you’re concerned about covid and queueing with lots of other people. Only downside was cleanliness of the room- our bedsheets had multiples hairs on them. Staff came and changed it straight away but it should have been avoided in the first place. There was also a dead fly in the bathroom. Overall great for location and staff were helpful. Had to pay for parking and there weren’t too many spots available but it wasn’t a huge hassle for us.

Hotel great, however the lodge was not 4 star
The hotel was great and service was good. We were however in the lodge which is advertised as 4 star but our room was not at that standard. No air con, just a fan and very cheaply done shower room.
