4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked the location as it is close to the beach and shops. It was also very clean and tidy. However the shower interior panelling could do with replacing as the edges at the bottom look well worn. Also our hot water jug did not turn off by itself and the panel heater needs one of its feet glued back on. Also a decent vege knife would be good to have. Your staff were friendly and well trained. The price was also very reasonable. Thank you we enjoyed our stay with you.
