Sensational views for Ocean facing rooms. No free Wifi - the service they did provide was awfully slow. It's 2020 - free, good WiFi mandatory. Location super. Room clean enough. Hotel is very dated but makes up for it with the view/location. Staff friendly and helpful.

I liked the beautiful ocean view, and the friendly staff. I didn’t like that there were no umbrellas for shade near pool.

The reception staff was lovely. When we checked in, the room was clean, but there was toilet paper unflushed in the toilet we are hoping was from the cleaners when they last cleaned the room. The rooms are quite dated, but the view of the Strand and Maggie Island definitely made up for it. The water pressure in the shower was quite low at peak times. The bottom sheet of the bed was really frustrating as it was a flat sheet that didn't reach under the mattress, so it kept bunching up at our feet and annoyed us. But the mattress was amazingly wonderful to sleep on. The curtains didn't reach across the windows so the sun came into the room very early. Parking was a massive pain in the butt. There are limited parking spots at the back of the hotel, so you are required to find parking along the Strand, which at Christmas time and weekends is near on impossible. We had to park blocks away.
