    Fabulous !

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff were lovely, we stayed in a double room with ocean views, you could see the sea from the bed ! I would recommend a visit. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with options of kippers or alternative eggs/omelette cooked freshly. 5 min walk to the sea/shops.
