Very comfortable room and bed, the owner is friendly. Great location with a sea view and only a short walk from the town centre and sea-front. Could not have asked for a better stay at that price!

Disliked: Cleanliness
Parking is difficult for large cars as car park narrow. We wrongly believed private bathroom to mean en-suite so unexpectedly had to creep out in our PJ’s middle of the night. Wasn’t really a problem tho as nobody else seemed to be on our floor. Cleaning in room and and bathroom could have been better. Tea/coffee in room was plentiful. Lady running the place was super friendly and helpful. The room served its purpose for us visiting the Open Air theatre which is a short walk away. Fab location overlooking the beach.
