This our 4th visit to Canasta and it never fails to disappoint. Great welcome from Dougie and his team. Free tea and coffee throughout the day, great sea views from lounge and bar areas. The rooms are a little dated however they are spotlessly clean and have everything you need. Fresh clean towels and bedding and a lovely comfy bed....

breakfast absolutely wonderful, staff excellent, owner friendly and rooms were just the job. there was plenty of parking but would probably be tight for space in high season, location was really good. plenty to do, morning newspapers free, free tea and coffee. would definitely stay again.

Fantastic New Year break, meeting Old friends & making New friends. Enjoyment increased when Gavin Flintoft ( Previous barman) came to visit us all and took time out to help relieve the pressure from Doug and Mandy by lending a helping hand whilst he was there. What a difference he made when he was behind the bar his smile and...
