Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Staff and owner were grate, however the rooms were cramped and not suitable for a family. The condition of the beds / mattresses were awful stained and dirty. The photos shown on the website were decieving.
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.
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!
