Warm welcome upon arrival. Evening bar staff very friendly. Bedroom clean with a great seafront view. Mattress hard, woke will a painful back. Breakfast was ok, but disorganised and fried egg was cold. Rudely woken at 1.10am with a female banging on a bedroom door and shouting.

I took our family of 15 out to dinner to celebrate a birthday. This must be quite a challenge for any restaurant but they excelled themselves. Food was excellent enjoyed by all, the service was timely and attentive to everyones needs. The food was well presented, portions sizes were substantial and represented good value for money. Would eat here again.

The food was brilliant, the staff were excellent and very attentive and professional. The staff were accommodating for our fussy eaters (ordered off the lunch menu at dinner time) and allergies (Im allergic to brown sugar) certainly recommend and eat there again. Home made food and portions were substantial and perfectly cooked

The location is fantastic - only a few steps from the beach. I stayed in the single balcony room on the second floor which was pretty and with a beautiful view. My mother had a sea view double room which was also very light and attractive. Sitting on the spacious balcony with a cup of coffee in the early morning... More

The waitresses were attentive, friendly and helpful and the food was well cooked, substantial and... More
