This was our second stay at Little Gull and it was as good as the first. The staff are friendly and helpful and the accommodation is so comfortable.

Everything at the resort was fresh and new and beautifully kept up by T.K. The beach and porch lounges were comfy and new, the bathrooms had real fluffy bath mats, all the sheets fit the beds, and the well stocked kitchen had real salt and pepper shakers.
