We booked room only as didn't want to be tied to meal times,paid £5 extra each per night for superior room which was huge with big balcony overlooking front of Hotel,the room was comfy & clean,also had kettle,tea,coffee & sugar at no charge which I understand standard rooms pay for.The Hotel was smart & clean,staff friendly & helpful,I can't comment on the food as ate out.5 min walk to bus station & 10 min to sea front.we usually hire a car but noticed since our last visit the amount of traffic is horrendous,too many cars on such a small Island,so we used the buses but took a long time to get anywhere because of traffic congestion. I found food & drink prices very reasonable.
