5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location, nice staff, clean.
The place is clean and the staff are really friendly. The owner is an absolute legend with plenty of local knowledge to help you out. The only negative for me - and this is because I'm a fussy git - but it did frustrate me that all the radiators were on maximum (scorching to touch), the rooms well over 21c, and the windows open to regulate the temperature. Has a bar downstairs and the breakfast is AMAZING. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Ticks all boxes at low cost.
With parking included, close enough to the beach and all amenities to wander in and out during the day, functional room and fun surfer atmosphere.........much more than we expected for the cost.Breakfast not bad either!
