Friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast
The friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere. It was private, comfortable and relaxing.
The convenience to the beach, town and shops. The breakfast selection was good and improved the value of the hotel from fair to good. The staff responded well to the mobility issue, below.
We had attempted to indicate that two of the party had mobility issues but for whatever reason, this was not conveyed. The hotel is not suitable for disabled people unless they can be guaranteed ground floor rooms. Even mobile people will find the stairs very challenging.
The newly refurbished studio we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, and had lots of natural light. The beds also were excellent. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied in its offerings. The staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The hospitality room with economical drinks and snacks was an unexpected treat. The restaurant recommendations proved very accurate. We booked the hotel because of the high ratings given it by Booking.com reviewers. We look forward to going back.
We were glad the hotel advised us prior to arrival to expect steep stairs, and thus to bring small suitcases. We found the climb worth it (most of the time) to get to our nice second floor studio. It would be helpful in the studios to include microwaves.
It was quiet, warm and friendly
position, friendliness & helpfulness of everyone
Nice hotel close to the sea. Nice staff attitude. Very close to many places of interest and need to see.
Very nice and attentive staff. Good breakfast. Good value for money due to its low price point. Nice location (50 meters from beach), but probably is very noisy in high season (directly overlooking the main road from the town to the beach).
The room was tiny and looked as if it was last maintained in the 1980s. The 'bathroom' really is more a shower/toilet closet. Due to construction work in the hotel, there was a penetrating smell of paint thinner hanging everywhere.
Very nice, friendly and helpful staff
Good location; close to public transportation; near beach and good restaurants; friendly and helpful owner/staff;
