Superb Hotel & Staff
10 out of 10 for Service from the moment we arrived until we left. All staff very friendly and very helpful. Room, including the bathroom, was absolutely spotless best we have seen. Will definitely, and have already done so, recommend a stay here to Friends & Family. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to to return for a longer stay.

Too many seagulls
It was a very nice room, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately there was a skylight window and when it rained the noise was thunderous, as also was the noise when the seagull s "tap;danced" on it most of the night. We had dinner in the restaurant and unfortunately I had to send back my belly of pork (black and overdone) but this was replaced immediately by the very courteous and friendly staff. I think if we had had a different room we would have slept better. The breakfast was very good.
