Great little guest-house with a lovely welcoming owner! Stayed here with a large group of friends and couldn't have received a warmer, friendlier welcome. The rooms are basic but for such a value price you don't need much more. I'd recommend for a couple night stay and it's a 5 min walk from the central pier.

stayed here for two nights with my family. Excellent situation and very warm welcome. Clean and tidy rooms. our room did not have a shower or toilet but for 15 pounds a night each it was not a problem as the shower room was just next door. 15 pounds a night is great value for this hotel. We will go... More
