We enjoyed the very special room which had a lot of special touch to it. Loved the pets on the premises, quite friendly dogs. Enjoyed the lovely sea view breakfast, can't beat that as the location was awesome.

Comfortable guest house looking over the sea - Room 1 is a suite with a huge private terrace and every comfort you could want. Walking distance to the centre of town with large selection of cafes and restaurants. Good breakfast and friendly, helpful staff.
