Room 6- small uncomfortable bed, no room to swing a cat, toilet door didn't close, hole punched in door, no door handle on... More

The owners/staff are friendly enough. But, really, it is a cheap B & B Hotel in Skegness. That is as far as it goes, I cannot understand those that have given the place a rave review. There was no mention of evening meals during my three night stay, not that I was requiring one and in any case the place... More

Staff are friendly, the room was awful though. Open wires hanging from ceiling, someone else's pubic hair in the shower and generally needed a good clean. The whole place stinks of cigarettes too. I would have stood there and complained about this but my fiance just wanted to get out of there! Staff are friendly though. Pity about our dreadful... More

When we arrived we weren't sure where to check in as there isn't a reception area. A woman eventually came to us who was very welcoming. She even asked us what we didnt like on our full english breakfasts for the morning. We were upgraded to an in suite room for free. The room was small but big enough for... More

The owners were very helpful and friendly, nice down to earth people. The breakfast each morning was excellent. All in all... More
