I really liked his place...nothing too fancy but simple pleasures like no music in the breakfast room, no faff with wifi, friendly not snooty staff and the amazing sea view across the road is a definite bonus.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Baron hotel in mid November. We were dropped off in front of the hotel around 8pm. We were given a room on the 3rd floor with ocean view.
