Lovely views from the hotel - worth paying extra to upgrade to a sea view room. Parking is available and the garden is stunning. Attentive, friendly staff, delicious food - worth paying for the 5-course evening meal and breakfast was great! Nice bar and lounge area. Quite a walk to and from town but there is a bus stop just...

Good value for money, with nice breakfast included which can't be grumbled at. Good location to walk down to the beach front & pubs/cafe by the beach. Staff very friendly & room was clean when we arrived.

Just returned from a 3-night stay and will be returning before too long. Our experience was excellent from the time of our booking to when we left. Staff friendly and eager to be helpful, and our room was very quiet. Excellent value for money. Thank you especially to Nicky. L&P

The food is also good (some rate it...
