Good location across from the beach and the view is the only thing it has going for it. Rooms dated. Analogue TV offering 2 or 4 stations. No fans or air conditioning.

Hi there, We are very aware this hotel needs refurbishing and we have already started refurbishing rooms. As you would appreciate, a project like this takes time and money. We do have fans and heaters for guests if requested at reception. Our TV's are being upgraded as well and the issue with the channels is due to the setup from the previous owner. We are working incredibly hard to fix things as we go. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Kind regards Reception

Checked in and were given a room on the very lowest level (without a view) . However we asked to be moved & were given a room on top level with lovely view of the water. Not sure why we weren’t offered a room like this in the first place as it appeared we were the only people staying there. It’s a shame that even the locals advised us not to eat in the restaurant on site. It’s a shame the owners haven’t taken on the feedback from many previous reviews to improve service & facilities. Complimentary breakfast was nice and view is great they just need to work on upgrading and taking full advantage of their great location.

Hi Anonymous, We make reservations on guests requests and therefore the room you were assigned initially was what you had requested at the time of booking. As it happened, we were able to change your room to one with a view at your request when you checked in, and we are glad you enjoyed the view. Rest assured we are working on many parts of this business that needs upgrading, as you could appreciate, a project like this takes time and money. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Kind regards Reception

Hi J, We're very sorry to hear this. If we were told directly as soon as you found this problem, we could have relocated you to another room perhaps. This is unacceptable and I will share your feedback with the appropriate staff to investigate this matter further. Thank you for reviewing us, we appreciate all feedback. Kind regards

Great view looking out window. Sad old tired room looking in. Bathroom door needs replacing, as does brown stained toilet.

Good hotel, close to the beach. We would have like a more efficient way of cooling our room.

Hello, We are very aware that the rooms need a cooling system in them but at the current moment, we are waiting for all rooms to be refurbished before we get to that step. We do have fans for the moment for guests to borrow in their rooms on really hot days. This Summer has been unusually hot for the East Coast so we understand what you're saying. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Reception
