We enjoyed our stay for 3 nights. The breakfast and dinner was ok, as it was included in the price. It was nice to have tea and biscuits in the afternoon. The staff was wonderful. It was winter therefore many retirees were staying here and it was definitely an older crowd. We rented bikes across the street and it is an excellent area to bike. They are building a beautiful boardwalk. I would definitely come back to stay for a short time.

Dated rooms in need of a makeover
The rooms are old and in need of a good paint and clean. The bath was yellow with age and was not very appealing to shower in let alone bathe. I reported to the receptionist, I think his name was Raphael that I was unhappy with the state of the room and that the bin had not been emptied. I asked to change room, and despite the lady receptionist saying the previous day that the hotel was very quiet, he stated he had no rooms. He was extremely unhelpful, and I would go as far as to say arrogant. The other people working their were fine. I would say that the beds appeared new and the bedding was fine. The areas outside of the room are also good and generally well kept. It is a pleasant location right next to the beach.

Standing the test of time!
This is not a new hotel and some areas are starting to look there age. That said it is a warm and pleasant hotel. The staff are excellent and visitors return here again and again. Worth a visit!

Beach side hotel
The hotel upgraded our b&b rate to half board at a very reasonable rate.

Laid back location near Spanish border.
Bit crowded at breakfast time and probably would not suit younger people but a convenient place in a nice level location. Good for walking and cycling.
