    Russell stay.

    Went with group of friends. Our rooms were together and opened onto balcony at back of hotel with street view and we were able to mix and mingle. Comfortable clean and spacious. No sea views but were quiet. Lovely dinner at hotel with great service. Hotel has been nicely refurbished with nice artwork. Enjoyed our couple of days away.

    A very well period , but modern, small full service hotel . Rooms are tastefully furnished with modern conveniences. Food quality is good as was food presentation. Restaurant Management a bit hap hazard and not entirely welcoming or attuned to client presence. Table wait service was friendly adn helpful.
