This hotel / guest house is positioned perfectly, as the name suggests it is right on the waters edge ( not just a marketing ploy)! The harbour and town is just a 20/30 min stroll along the sea front. The hotel is tidy, clean and for a building of this age well maintained. My room commanded a lovely sea view... More

This hotel is very friendly. The staff were always helpful when we required a supply of certain items for the rooms. Breakfast on the Sat/Sun was fabolous, also there was a good supply of cearals and orange juice. The full english breakfast was well presented and excellent.

This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The girl on reception barely greeted us, and was interested only in securing the payment on arrival. We had to ask timings for breakfast, and had to look for the residents' lounge and dining room. We stayed as a family in two ground floor twin rooms. There was no central... More

I disagree with all of the below negative comments. I stayed there one night with my significant other and it was exactly what we paid for. There was a very lovely girl on reception upon arrival who let us check in early. The room was tidy, clean and came with all of the little bits you hope for (Coffee, tea,... More

Stayed here for 1 night on business. It's out of season so there isn't much going on in the area at night as you'd expect. The previous reviewers' statements about the owner who hasn't bothered to iron his shirt are true. The reception area has a bit of a doggy whiff about it, but overall the presentation is clean and...

I do not know where to start. I went with my boyfriend for 2 nights and I cannot think of any positives to even this out. First of all, when we got into the room I went into the toilet to find a used toilet roll with about 3 pieces left, so obviously they thought that the next guests had... More

Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel at the beginning of October for a weekend break. The hotel is a short walk from the railway station and set back from the main road. We had a first floor room and the view was absolutely gorgeous. The room itself was a bit small but that didnt matter at all as... More

Unwelcoming and continued to be so for the 3 days we were there. Room rather tatty, shower ok if you waited ten minutes for it to warm up, 'sliding door' between room and shower/toilet useless, sink tiny and inaccessible. Nice sea view is the best comment I can make. Beds just about adequate and could do with being replaced along... More

Went Away For The Weekend With My Partner, Both Found It To Do The Job! Friendly Service And Everything Was Tidy/Working. Not Bad Price Too! Right By The Sea With Views And A Short Walk Into Town. Had BreakFast Also. Big Choice And Beautifully Cooked. Not Really Much To Fault. Recommend
