This guest house is clean, comfortable, quiet and good breakfast too.
just a small problem with parking spaces, but otherwise great for what we wanted.

We really loved the rooms which both had sea-view and were bright and clean. We were given a travel cot for our baby which was great and there was enoug space to put our stuff.

I liked the fact that we could choose whether we wanted new towels every day or use them again to prevent waste. The breakfast was great with plenty of choice and very good and friendly service.

The only thing that might be improved upon was the fact that the rooms are quite bright early on in the morning (when the sun was shining) with no proper curtains to keep out the sunlight (though this might, of course, also be seen as a plus depending on what you like..)

Owners were so welcoming and helpful and the whole hotel was immaculately fresh, tidy and clean.
Luxuriously comfortable bedroom with being OTT.
The Full Engish Breakfast was extremely well cooked and appealing. Scruptious!
Very close to beach, but off the main road, and very close to all amenities.
We'll be back.

We arrived here after a family trip from Denmark. The owner, Paul, was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the local area. The en-suite room was big enough for our requirements and very clean. It is a good base for visiting the local area. It is very near the sea front, but far enough out of the centre for noise not to be a problem. Breakfast was very good. It was cooked freshly to order. There was plenty of choice. The TV in the room was small, but if you're going away to watch TV, stay at home.

Excellent position...breakfast was top quality...beds were comfortable..pillows not the same standard.The room was a bit bright in the morning could have done with some thicker/blackout curtains.Spent two nights there and would be very happy to go back.Some parking space available off the road.Internet connection was good.

Thanks for your review, we do appreciate your comments. Apologies about the pillows, extra pillows are always to be found in the wardrobe or within the divan base draws.
Your the second guest in as many weeks to comment on the early morning sun spoiling a good lie in. I have to assume it's the new curtain pole we had fitted in the spring when we re-decorated the room, its lifted the curtain further from the window and letting in the light around the edges. Anyone want to buy a 16 foot bay metal curtain pole, infact two as I've got one for room 2 which won't be going up now.

Thanks Jill & Paul
