Hotel not in a good place

Pros: it was just a place to sleep
Cons: a lift for luggage at least. make sure power points are screwed to wall and air conditioner works to save changing rooms. Make the rooms much brighter
Location: coffee shop downstairs as a separate business makes great coffee and cakes. Nothing in the area of tourist interest
busy stree with railway tracks and no sand on beach just rocks I saw one person squatting to toilet
