A shabby, run down hotel in desperate need of refurbishment. Awful! On the positive side, the room was clean and it was OK for one night, but I'm not sure I'd want to stay there any longer.

It was a beautiful old building but needs a revamp.The sea gulls are nesting were possible & making the place dirty & smelly,the food was not very nice & could not get what we wanted to drink at the bar. Will not go again or tell anyone else to go,what a waste of money,when we could have gone elswhere.

The hotel is a little run down with flaking wallpaper and a couple of interesting stains on the carpets, however it is clean. Staff are friendly and the overall experience was good. The rooms are lovely we even had a bonus of a jacuzzi bath which we weren't expecting. Breakfast was an average hotel breakfast but the view while eating it was worth it. Would definitely stay again was a great night away.
