May 2014

The best small hotel I have ever stayed in. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well furnished. The welcome by the night porter when we arrived at 11.45pm (after travel delays) was very warm and helpful. We were offered refreshments before we retired. The buffet breakfast was extensive and catered for most needs. The joy was taking our breakfast on a tray to the roof terrace where you can dine in sunshine with views towards the sea. Car parking was easy in a public car park (never full) immediately adjacent to the hotel. You notified the hotel receptionist you were parked there and they fed the meters all day if necessary at no cost to you. There was also free Wi-Fi, (we were charged $10 a night in another hotel for this facility) and you could take out free bottles of water as required. The hotel also provided towels and seats to take to the nearby beach. Where else would you get such service at this price? Throughout our stay the hotel staff were very obliging and helpful. Would I stay there again? Definitely. I am a critical guest and could find nothing wrong. OK so it didn't have marble floors or a swimming pool etc, and may appear to be somewhat old fashioned and quaint to some, but for my money this hotel ranks with the best. Thank you for a super stay.
