Close to the beach - just popped in for a pot of tea in the bar on a Spring morning. Service was prompt and courteous. Toilets were small but clean. A bunch of older ladies were sitting inside (looked like a weekly gathering) and they sang a few songs before they left giving a great little atmosphere to the place

Stayed here for a few days on the beach with our young kids. Very friendly traditional style hotel. Not flash by any means but very welcoming and good value. Great location across the road from the beach. Good food and lively music in the bar at night. A gem of a little hotel.
