      • Central location, the relaxed atmosphere and freindly staff on arrival and the next day. Large room big bed and great food. Pool etc all good.

        For a hotel that has recently been refurbished, is extremely poor, the shower over the bath could be an issue for some less mobile than me.

      • The location was great and free Tapas at the hotel from 5.30pm to 6.00pm was nice. Staff were very helpful and the bed was the most comfortable bed. Restaurant was very pleasant and the facilities were clean.

        Really poor housekeeping quality, car parking underneath for a modest daily fee and the room I had was small. Toaster was extremely slow, breakfast was expensive in comparison.
