  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is a charming old hotel with lots of history. It has an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool. At the moment the steam room is closed and breakfast is served at the table, i.e. there is no buffet.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Quality of food is very low compared to what it used to be a few years ago. Staff never seem to know what’s included or what’s not included in a half board. Junior suites need a serious update. I’ve never seen a suite with no fridge and 1 miniature Shower gel, 1 miniature soap, 1 miniature shampoo, we were 4 people in that room!!! At the end, someone sends me an invoice at 6.00am for my check out while I was still sleeping, I voiced me someone else’s dinner, drinks and room service which don’t even belong to us. Terrible.... God help you and your childish management

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Contact lenses on the bedside table on check in and stale meats served at breakfast. Blinds had no child safely catches on. With all going on standards should be higher. Overall poor for a five star !!

Lovely hotel, needs Some attention in bedroom

The double bed was smaller than usual at just 5 feet and although we had a sea view the steam from having a bath in the afternoon actually steamed up the bedroom windows for a long time and recurred when wiped away due to inefficient bathroom ventilation so the sea view was wasted. This was meant to be a freshly refurbished. The amount of milk and coffee in the room is simply insufficient to escape from feeling the hotel is being very mean. Room 231
