What a lovely, and friendly place. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, the accommodation is great and the breakfast couldn't have been better (amazing sausages). The views of the south bay are beautiful, lovely to gaze at during breakfast, and the central location makes trips to town or the beach ridiculously easy.
