Comfy digs for the night, spacious room and the air-con came in handy, phew. Very handy on the strand, no trouble driving to, and out in the morning.

On entering our room, I noticed food crumbs on one bench and splatters of soft drink covering another bench. I went straight to reception to report it, they came and cleaned the benches and said they would ‘talk to the team.’ Sorry, but in this Covid-19 world it is not acceptable that the most basic of cleaning is not done between bookings.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your room. I am very sorry that the room was not to our usual standard when you arrived. there is certainly no excuse for the benches not being cleaned properly.
