Had an excellent stay. John, Maxine and their staff went out of their way to accommodate us, help with parking and our bags and made excellent recommendations for dining. We had a mix up with our transportation and John helped us book a last minute flight to London!

Hotel looks over the sea front, we were in room 3 at the back of the hotel. Very quite plenty of room for 2. Breakfast was very good and the owners, John and Maxine could not do enough for you.

The room was stylish and very clean and a lovely shower with constant hot water. Brilliant location as you walked out of the hotel...

A nice friendly hotel close to beach and town. Our room had sea views, yes a bit rundown but clean lovely owners could not do enough for you and full breakfast every day. For the price don't expect 5star just a nice family hotel. I would recommend and hope to visit again soon.
