We stayed here for just 1 night. The hotel is located perfectly. It is in a quiet street but still in walking distance of the beach and the towncenter. Room is cozy. Bathroom was clean. You can make your own tea or coffee in the room. Bed was comfortable. In all a nice place to stay.

Stayed for 1 night and received a warm welcome. Room was lovely and clean and a good selection at breakfast. If your travelling to Skegness I would recommended this hotel on site parking and just a short walk from the sea.

We have stayed in many B & B's and this is the most friendly one we have ever stayed in. Annie was so very attentive and really cared about our stay there.
