We were welcomed by very friendly staff members who were very willing to accommodate where possible and made sure our stay was pleasant. Good value for money and good location, relatively near to the town center, within 5 minutes' drive to the beach.

Arrived late afternoon at the lodge purely by chance (no previous booking made). We were quickly and very friendly sorted out regarding room, breakfast and other arrangements. The room was clean and comfortable, and the next morning we enjoyed a healthy continental breakfast.

Good location and a nice welcoem. However, the rooms were smelling and the waterpressure in the shower low. The room was not face the street but we could not sleep due to the traffic noice during the night. Although breakfast was included, if you wanted to have eggs, you had to pay extra. So we left after one night although we had paid for two.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. The valve issue interrupting the hot water pressure was rectified as was humanly possible. We undertake to do our best at all times but at the height of the holiday season, problems do occur. We apologize for our shortfall in services to you. Please do consider contacting us directly, to enable us to offer compensation for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay. Best wishes always.
