I highly recommend this B&B, Ron and Joan who own it made me so welcome. The breakfasts set you up for the rest of the day. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Ideal spot just a couple of mins walk from the sea front and not far from town center. I had a perfect weekend there and will be going... More
