  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Excellent well placed small hotel. Let down by staff and music at the pool. Pool and bar area good but staff didn’t seem very interested in serving us. Three of them there, one on phone, order eventually taken and then not passed to bar tender. Music style at 7pm was like being in a nightclub and far too loud to have a conversation with each other.
