Stay over Christmas

Lovely hotel right in the heart of the old town, short walk to the beach and escalator which takes you up to the start of the new town, bus stops and little tourist train. Taxi rank outside hotel. We booked on room only so can't comment on breakfast but the pizzeria and bar were used and both were good. Roof top sun terrace was open but the bar closed, we went up to look and it looked good, hot tub up there which was working. Cleaners were friendly as was the girl on reception whith curly hair and glasses, she was always very polite and greeted you when she saw you, can't say the same for the other lady, she was always grumpy/rude. We booked a superior balcony room which was very nice, slightly larger balcony that the other rooms and more than enough storage/wardrobe space (two wardrobes and plenty of hangers), large bathroom with window (yay, hate no windows in bathrooms) safe and tea/coffe making stuff. Got a little cold at night but we worked out how to use the heating and there are also blankets in the wardrobes. Over all we would stay there again.

I did go out of season, 25/11/2019 so the bar was closed but for me that was not a problem. The hotel and my room were clean. My room had everything I needed, it was adequate without being overdone. The fan in the bathroom didn't work and the heat exchanger couldn't warm the room up above 17C. The bed was brilliant and after all that, to me, is what really matters. A brilliant shower with plenty of hot water. A wall mounted TV with English news channels. Only one thing concerned me. The electric kettle! If the kettle boils and the thermostat switches off you presume it is off until you turn it on again. Wrong! Once the temperature drops inside the kettle it starts up again on its own. If you empty the kettle without switching it off manually and it starts up again there is a possibility of damage. Value for money I could not fault this hotel and my visit but of course it was very quiet being November.
