Great stay, great hospitality, very quiet, best sleep in ages. Breakfast yummy and plentiful. Yes decor could do with a revamp, but don't let that deter you from this great rarity of a find. Definitely stay again. Thanks Peter!

Special thanks to Peter who was very nice to us and made us feel comfortable. I didn't have big expectations when I booked the room, I got exactly what I paid for. He was nice enough to place us on a top floor so we can see the sea from our room. The rooms are not big, I knew that... More

We were shown where to park free, and then the manager carried our luggage to our 'dog friendly' room. He was very warm and welcoming and asked us if we would like any bowls or anything for our dog. We asked about breakfast because as we travel a lot, we understand that dogs are not allowed in the dining room,... More

The location is great, easily accessible to restaurants and the sea front. Had a really good quiet nights sleep even on a... More

Holiday soured by very poor food. It was outsourced early morning then microwaved. Lift broken on second day leaving 72 yr old father to climb 3 flights of stairs. Very poor lack of local knowledge by the host. Will not recommend.

Our room was lovely, it was a good size with plenty of space and very comfy beds. The bathroom is very small and you could get claustrophobic in the shower but everything worked and it was clean. My husband was very happy to see that there was packets of decaf coffee with the tea making bits. The hotel is very... More

Hotel has a great location with on road car parking. The room we had was sold as a Double but only had a 3/4 bed! It would have been ok as a small single, a chair had to be removed to give us space to put our case down on the floor. We found the room very noisy. We would... More

Lovely hotel in a perfect location. Peter the owner couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was second to none. Yes the hotel could do with an upgrade in places, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again with my family
