    Good location and close to the beach. Sofa bed didn’t come with any sheets or bedding and had to call reception. King bed really uncomfortable and pillows way too high and couldn’t sleep on at all.

    Friendly staff and great access but the buildings are out dated and a general repair needed to be done. The menu for in room service needed more options.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was unique in that you are sharing someone’s home and interacting with them and their two good natured dogs. Wayne was very friendly and cooked a very tasty breakfast. He was also very polite and helpful with advice and ensuring I had everything that I needed. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the bathroom.
