Positive Reviews

Excellent Location & Value.

Superb location within a short walk of both seaside and centre of town.  The beach area is lovely.  Near the marina on a serene side street, there is parking on-site if you request in advance; once full to capacity, they will provide free passes to a near

Friendly, Efficient Staff.

Helpful, attentive staff make this locale its best.  Warm welcomes and courteous smiles greet you and you can count on efficient check-in/out procedures.  If they are busy, just ring the bell and someone will appear within minutes.  

Clean, No Frills Rooms.

Tidy and cosy with comfortable beds and all the necessary amenities. Standard features are provided, and more items (such as hair dryers) are available at the desk upon request.  Nice decor, ample use of natural light.

Negative Reviews

Too Small.

Rooms are bit too small for some, who complained the showers were too small and there wasn't enough room in either bedroom or bathroom for their travel accoutrements; only one small table on bedside is provided.

Needs A Refurb.

Some felt an update is in order, with bathroom tiles and shower heads first on the list, the foyer area second and a freshening of the stale smoke/old kitchen oil smell throughout the building on a high priority as well.  Poor mattress quality in the room

Better On The Outside Than In.

The locale looks better outside according to some, who felt the interior drab decor quality let it down upon entrance.
