The hotel is beautifully furnished and offers very comfortable, quiet rooms. I personally missed having a bath, but the parking, friendly staff and walking distance to the waterfront (literally 50 metres) were an absolute bonus. The pizza oven in the restaurant is a real eye catcher as is the furniture in the restaurant. Stunning

Despite the hotel being very quiet, both mornings were taken up with waiting for hot food. We gave up waiting for a smile from the grumpy waitress, despite our best efforts to engage her in conversation. Beds were comfy though.

We had a lovely stay at The Rex Hotel. The room was clean, modern and have everything we need. The room looked over at the swimming pool and it was a little noisy at night when some of the visitors party there. The staff were friendly and the breakfast wonderful.
