The rooms are clean and they are cleaned every day, there is a TV in the room plus a cafeteria downstairs. They offer breakfast and dinner but only if you opt for it. The hotel is easily accessible. Our room had a great view of the harbour

Clean, Clean, Clean, Clean, I can never say clean enough. The walls seem like they were painted recently. Super Clean I tell you. Total value for money. The staff could do with a bit of training though. Basic Food and Basic Breakfast but Clean... Sorry for saying clean so much. This place is clean!
