  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing

    I thought the property looked tired - the curtains stuck on the tracks and didn’t close properly, the taps dripped, there were no tissues, we had to ask for the third guest towel every day...not what I was expecting after having stayed there before

    It was just by the sea so the view from our balcony was great. Everything was clean and tidy, except for the hair dryer- it was a bit dusty

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The bedroom, bathroom and lounge area was exceptionally clean and there was sufficient utensils and appliances in the kitchen area such as a microwave, fridge and small cooker. The place itself was very conveniently situated within a 15min walk from the town centre and pier. However, it did lack space and would benefit from air conditioning. I would definitely recommend this establishment.
