Brilliant hotel”

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel: the rooms and bathrooms were big, beds comfortable, lovely views to the sea. We enjoyed breakfast, there was a nice variety of things to choose from. The hotel provided free shuttle bus to the town centre which was an extra bonus. We also liked the free onsite parking for our car. Staff was really helpful, professional and really nice.
