Went to The Parks on 11th September for three nights. This was our 5th visit here. The Parks is situated in a quiet peaceful location but still only five minutes to the beach. We had a very relaxing stay. Our room once again was very clean. The bed was so comfortable we slept very well. The breakfast was so delicious...

I found The Parks Guest Accommodation via a booking website, and like all venues I stay at, I checked TripAdvisor first to look at the reviews on the accommodation. I was surprised to find such a highly rated guest house where all the reviews (every last one) were positive - something I've never seen before on TripAdvisor. Our stay here...

Another very comfortable and relaxing stay. Guest house is ideally ovaries within easy walk of both the beach and the town. Tim and family make you feel very welcoming and are always available to help. Breakfasts are excellent and the rooms better than the so called 5* Imperial Hotel. Cannot fault the place.

Myself and my 2 teenage sons stayed here for 5 nights recently and can't fault it. Spacious, comfortable family room with clean, modern en suite with lovely large shower. Tim and his wife are really welcoming, friendly, helpful and relaxed. Would definitely recommend and will revisit in the future.

Tim really made this stay for us, he went out of his way to accommodate a couple of our requests and even brought our takeaway to our room after we missed breakfast! Really lovely rooms and a short cab ride (you could walk it) from the centre. Cheers Tim!
