Basic

Rooms in need of renovation. Only got fresh towels once in a week's stay when bins emptied but not cleaned very well. Poor choice of food at lunch & dinner but always something we could eat, breakfast choice good. Pleasant staff on reception & bar & good all inclusive drinks served in 'proper' glasses. Poor evening entertainment but didn't bother us as we didn't stay in hotel. Location good but not close enough to centre to be noisy. Near to bus station which was a bonus for us as we like to use public transport. Should warn in description that hotel is on a hill so not too good for elderly or infirm. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would not be in a rush to return.

Filthy

Yes u get what u pay for and you expect that but what u don't expect is to get fresh towels only twice in a 7night stay and never once did they brush or mop floors... Told reception, they did give me extra towels but no difference to the cleaning.. Courtesy room on day of leaving was no b8r, your shoes stuck to the floor when walking...

Stunning views

We've just returned from our 5th Christmas at this hotel. We stay b&b only because we like the live music and variety of the many surrounding restaurants. I have a young family and wouldn't keep returning if there were safety or hygiene Issues. I've seen the negative reviews and don't really understand what more people expect from a three star hotel or the reasonable price. Great location, friendly staff and stunning views. Already booked for next year.

You get what you pay for, so don't complain

This was our 5th stay in 5 years. The rooms need updating but overall you get what you pay for. Basic but reasonably priced. The location is great, the staff were extremely friendly and 2 nice pools. The food wasn't great but there was always sometimes to eat. Couldn't believe how many people were complaining. For what you pay it is a great hotel. If you want 4 stars go and pay for it.
