We had 2 nights here & it was very enjoyable. Our room was spotlessly clean, very comfy bed & good size bathroom. The owners Jo & Andy can't do enough to make you feel more comfortable & welcome. The breakfast was delicious too. Would definitely recommend & return again.

We stayed at our favourite hotel in June and had a wonderful relaxing break. The hotel is right on the seafront and you can hear the sea lapping the shore. The weather was great and as usual we got sunburned, who thinks to take sunblock in the UK? The rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is fantastic, with... More

The attention to detail by Jo and Andy is exceptional. The room we occupied called Gambles is very spacious and comfortable with a balcony and sea views. We returned for the third time and the welcome and hospitality has never wavered from our first visit. This is topped off with wonderful breakfasts on the patio (when the sun shines) and... More

Fantastic one night stay for anniversary, welcome drink. Bag carried up, Andy and Jo are very welcoming and friendly. We had room number 4 ,very spacious with balcony looking out to sea, Andy and Jo recommended a restaurant ( Pendleton's) which was excellent. Amazing 3 course breakfast. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

This boutique B&B is right opposite the beach and from the start it was a fantastic experience. Jo & Andy met us as we arrived and carried our cases to our spacious room. The room was on the first floor with wide views of the beach and sea. It was wonderful to sit in bed and look straight out to... More

We had a great short stay here. On arrival we were met by the owner, almost before we could get out of the car! He carried our bags up to our very large room on the top floor and showed us around. There is no lift. The room had a great walk-in shower room (no bath), flat screen TV, large... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated and maintained. My bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. From my bath I had a wide view of the sea and esplanade - odd at first but great once I got used to the idea that I could see out but no-one could see in. Although right on the sea front, my room was quiet... More

I find it hard to describe this lovely hotel as a b+b because b+b conjures up images of formidable seaside land ladies with grey hair, rolling pins and basic accommodation and this couldn't be further from the truth. Shoreside is perfectly sited on the seafront with secure car parking at the back of the hotel and hosts, Jo and Andy,... More
