Building is an older build but that did not bother us as it was well maintained and clean and comfortable, spacious, bright, a with a superb location. The value in price was exceptional. We cannot usually get a small dingy motel room at the price that we got a whole 2 bedroom apartment here. We kept adding more nights as we didnt want to leave!

Excellent place to stay
1st time staying here and it is a fantastic place to stay. Even before we arrived we got a SMS to say our room was ready before the stated check in time. Really nice unit, large, well equipped. Good heating, which is important at the moment. Rooms have a good view of the sea, made it great to sit on the balcony. Fast, free wifi. Large parking spaces, plenty of them. Both the ladies we met on reception were super friendly and helpful. We look forward to staying again and for longer.

Upon arrival we were very pleased to find a lift to take us up to our apartment. After a long day in the car, this was a very welcome find - no need to cart bags and cases up flights of stairs! The apartment was great as was the location.
