  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel is immaculately kept to a high standard. The room was comfortable and there was ample provision for making hot drinks. A cooked breakfast was provided daily. The owners were very friendly and attentive. The hotel is conveniently situated on a bus route and also close to the rail station meaning that you can get around easily using public transport. The beach is within walking distance but the hill is a little steep.
