This is more what I'd describe as a contractors hotel or low budget b&b. It appears to have new owners who do not seem to be experienced hoteliers.

Stayed here for long weekend with two toddlers. Very accommodating and helpful and didn't mind the noise of two noisy princesses. Great easy to walk into town and beach. Free wifi and kids loved the breakfast. I especially enjoyed the cocktails.
