Great views, close to town
Posted Sep 30, 2016
Arrived to a warm welcome from the reception staff and George (Manager) was on hand to carry our luggage up to our room. I had chosen a superior room with sea view and I was not disappointed, the only downside is that there is a steep slope and steps leading from reception up to all the rooms, so you definitely get a workout by the time you reach the top. The options and choice of having your breakfast in your room or on the main patio area was great and you had the option to pre-book your breakfast at or turn up and wait, although this wasn't very long if you did turn up un-announced, the timings meant you never felt rushed (as breakfast was on from 08.00 until mid-day)! You could have lunch and evening meals there if you wished and we found no fault with any of the food we ordered. The bar was open for drinks until late and served a wide range.
There were enough sun loungers and umbrellas for our stay, but not sure if there would be in the height of the season.
Walking to and from town is an experience as there are no pavements and the cars/coaches don't always pull out to leave enough space, you will need a torch to see where you are going when it gets dark as the street lamps are a lot to be desired and a lot do not work. It is a short walk to the town centre, but again uphill on the way back.
When the cruise ships are in, the town centre gets very busy and the prices in the restaurants/shops are overpriced. Hire a car & venture out you get more for your money.
