This was our 5th year of going back to the Briars - the rooms are clean and very comfortable with all amenities. Malcolm and Mandy are very welcoming and will accommodate all requests. Breakfast is superb, with a lot of choice and freshly cooked. The location is brilliant - facing the sea front, with many rooms having a sea view.... More
