  • Family with children

    The only good point to our stay was that the bar was very cheap and breakfast was nice

    i didnt like the fact that if you was paying by debit card then they charge you 2.5%. Also in my room the shower was rubbish it just dripped down the wall and the bathroom and bedroom floors were sticky and needed to be hoovered better .I dont think this can classify as a hotel itsmore of a B&B

  • Couple

    Just the location and nothing else.

    Im sorry I did not like anything about my stay and waited for my stay to get done with. When we entered the room we were welcomed by this terrible stench of something being burnt. We soon realised that the stench stayed in the room and wouldn't go even after ventilation. The room looked so tired and dated and uncomfortable we couldn't use the sofa or the bathroom.There was no latch on the bathroom door and we were in twin sharing.The entire room/ hotel looked gloomy tired and smelly.The bed looked old and tired as well. We wasted our money. We have stayed in better hotels in better locations for half the price!

  • Older travelers

    nice view

    the shower was either cold or hot and had no water pressure which made life difficult as you couldnt really have a bath either

  • Older travelers

    Good location,very good staff. Good food and good choices of food. Good parking. Very pleased with our stay.

  • Older travelers

    The Staff was very friendly and allowed us to check in early. Great Breakfast facilities and service.

    The decor and quality was not below standard for a £75 a night hotel!

  • Group of friends

    Friendly & helpful staff. Good location as it is an easy walk to the old town & the beach. It is an okay 2 star hotel.

    Over priced for what it is. Very noisy as the walls are thin so hear all that is going on in nearby rooms. Dated decor with old uneven beds and worn towels. Not the cleaniest place I have ever stayed but not horrible either.

  • Couple

    Good location, friendly staff, good food

    Rooms are quite small considrering how much you pay.

  • Single

    There was nothing to like. It's a terrible hotel.

    Awful, run down damp, dirty and incredibly expensive.

  • Family with children

    Nice location. Helpful staff, good breakfast clean rooms

    Rooms too small for the rate we paid. One room had so little space arund the bed that we had to go over the bed to the other side. Not worth £75 per night

  • Older travelers

    The location both to the beach and to the old village was very nice and it was located in a very calm area

    I think it was a bit expensive for the hotelroom, had to pay 75 pound for a dobbelroom for 1 nigth and the bed was not a standard dobbelroom

  • Family with children

    Hotel is located a nice place. Breakfast was good and staff behaviour was excellent.

    The facilities are not that great. Tv in the room don't even show clear pictures. Bathroom had leakage and most of the floor area was covered with water. I am not sure whether we got a fully cleaned bed mats..

  • Family with children

    Meeting up withf friends, but that's all

    The rooms were smelly, the decor was poor for the price we paid. Everything looked very tired and needed some tlc. Very disappointing for the price

  • Couple

    Good location (close to the beach and town centre), generous breakfast, friendly staff.

    Uncomfortable bed (felt like sleeping on tennis balls), noisy (you could hear the neigbours walking upstairs), room generally needs a good clean, outdated decor throughout.

  • Family with children

    Location and friendly staff. Reception manned 24hrs. Good service when needed.

    Room very small. Broken sink and smelled a bit musty when we first arrived. Something that was also a little irritating; bed-side lamp/bulb did not work.

  • Couple

    The staff and service was excellent. Good brekfast (apart from the cheapo frozen sausages) Very good proximity to the beach and touristy bits of Shankin..

    Quite run down beaten up old rooms where time has stopped in around 1978 ! needs some serious updating ! Our room with its red swirly carpet and matching red/black chipboard furnture had 2 large steps in it, 1 to get into the ensuite and another `inside` the ensuite to get into shower ! bizzarre..
