Friendly staff, and good amenities. Had an issue with our TV signal, but didn't matter as we used the communal area. Nice local pubs for evening food. Walk in shower helpful for those with access difficulties.

She has managed to create a welcoming, happy atmosphere (the staff seem happy... More

We booked last minute with the Tourist Information so had done no research, though for the price had some idea of what to expect. We were greeted by a lovely, friendly young lady who showed us to our room. It was a family room - £90 for two of us. The room was Ok and the bathroom very good. The... More

Firstly this hotel is lovely with the most amazing breakfast you will get. The area is stunning and a short walk from a beautiful beach (if you can manage a hill so steep it needs steps on the pavement, good exercise though). The staff (except one) are lovely and very polite. Negative points for the hotel are the beds are... More
