We have stayed a few times. The rooms wonderful but very bad stained furniture outside our room 14. A little of putting and we always seem to stay in the same room with the bullet hole in the window. We had lunch and it was the best steak we have had for a longtime. Staff were also excellent.

Perfect location to the city and the beach. Priced very well. The hotel has a lot of charm and character. Needs a little TLC due to the age of the building but overall extremely clean and lovely. We've stayed there twice now, highly recommend :)

Hi there, thank you for your review! We are in the best location, so close to the beach! We are sorry you were unhappy with room 1, however, we must point out that although we can agree it isn't one of our best rooms, it is the cheapest. Supported by a number of photographs on the booking sites so the guest knows which room they are booking. Again, we apologies that you weren't best impressed with this choice, please let us know if you plan to stay again and we can make sure you are in one of our more popular rooms

Great place to stay, but attracted a bunch of complete twats with a 'skateboard trivia' night - what a bunch of utter w@nkers!
