Nicely located just across the road from the train station, which was perfect considering as to how we arrived by train. ;) Instantly made to feel comfortable by Charlie and Hazel. Lovely comfortable clean rooms with cosy beds. Tasty and varied breakfast menu. Overall a lovely place to stay. Thanks for having us, hope to see you again.

Thanks for the review. Indeed it was "short and sweet", perhaps you will be able to stay longer some other time. I hope your conference was worth while and you managed to find a suitable parking spot!

Excellent as always - have been going for nearly 18 years and now Hazel and Charlie are good friends. Would recommend this to anyone as so clean, comfortable and friendly. It is situated close to the railway station and town as well and again not far from the coastline.
