Delightful Family Run Hotel
Despite our early arrival our room was ready and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The pool area was well maintained with beautifully clean pool in the centre. A few more colourful plants would have finished it off. The dining room was clean and bright and the food efficiently served. The pork in particular on the night we stayed was delicious.

Pensioners Paradise
Room was not clean - numerous spiders/webs, dirty bath. Skirting boards thick wuth dust behind doors and in bathroom. Bed was old and mattress poor. Stayed during warm weather on second floor and the temperature was uncomfortable, even with both windows wide open all night. This also didn't help in the morning when awoken by the glass bins being emptied before 6am right under my window. Lots of noise from room below, but the hotel was full of pensioners and I think the couple in the room below must have been partially deaf, judging by the volume at which they felt it necessary to communicate at. Not the hotel's fault. Staff were all very helpful and polite.
