Wouldn't recommend
Very tired looking room in the original part of the hotel, grubby and tattered furniture and carpet. Very noisy and some quite rude staff. Pool area wasn't cleared of rubbish from one day to the next.

Weather was great, hotel was a perfect location. It was a bit loud in evening from hearing singers from the Old Town Square but this didn't bother us. Only down fall was the uncomfy beds

Decent stay great location
Hotel is in a brilliant location, less than 5 minute walk into the old town, to shops restaurants pubs and the beach! Rooms with pool/sea view are quite noisy at night time. Majority of staff are lovely and very helpful, one lady at reception (blonde short hair) was very rude, no people skills, wasn’t approachable and not helpful at all!! Hated seeing her whilst passing reception. Everyone else is lovely though

Great location/staff otherwise below average
Room was too small for 2 people - we were tripping over each other to try to pass each other within the room. In addition, free wifi was offered but the wifi did not reach our room which was frustrating. Mirror in the bathroom was disgusting dirty/stained with dirt - it should honestly be replaced. Front desk staff was super nice and helpful. The location was perfect and would consider staying there again for this reason alone.

8/10 Very Good

Staff were really lovely, had a leak one morning and it was sorted within an hour, offered a new room but it was fixed so felt no need. Only downside is the church bells that start from 8am so it’s hard to lie in, and also the doors aren’t very insulated so you hear everything going on in the corridor/when the cleaners clean the rooms in the morning on the same level. I paid for breakfast and couldn’t eat anything as I’m vegan but I had lots of coffee which I’m happy with. They did tell me if I mentioned it prior they would have gotten me food which is nice of them - I booked last minute (day before) so it didn’t bother me at all. There’s places close by that cater. Location is great, super close to the beach and the bars and restaurants. Pool gets sun all day. Overall really happy with my stay
