We spend one night but we ended up wondering some more. The facilities were clean and nice and the location is good too. Walking distance from lovely Cockington is a plus. The staff was really lovely and caring. We look forward for another time to a quiet relaxing stay.

We stayed for 3 nights in November whilst visiting relatives. The new owners are really welcoming and the food fantastic! Our room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Brilliant value in a lovely setting, very convenient for access to the seafront. We will definitely be returning again soon.
