Beachfront location, budget accommodation. Stayed in family room with one double and two singles. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast served in dining room, good choice of options. Very impressive table service at breakfast, thank you. Generally clean, outdated decor, but appropriate for the price. Our room required some upkeep (holes in bathroom ceiling, edging from bath surround falling off).... More
