Uncleansed room, dirty towels, extremely noisy at night. Owners were friendly and breakfasts were nice. Not for the faint hearted. Avoid at all costs.

This B+B was clean and very cheap, the breakfast was nice and the owners were pleasant, 10 minutes walk to the sea front, the room was cleaned every morning and you can come and go as you like, :) If you are on a tight budget this would be ideal,
