Bad experience
It was horrible staying. The room was very old. The toilet was broken and it's door not being closed. The carpet was very dirty and smells. There was no reception service and no answering to the phone. If you forgot your key then you will sleep outside. The lady was rude. Not coming back.

The woman that looked after me while I was there was amazing. A lovely woman all round, loved the hotel too, was pleasantly surprised with a sea view when I was expecting one of the back.
