Great place to stay, we had a one night stay. Clean and tidy with everything you could want. Great breakfast only spoiled by the hangover! The Gables is close the to town centre and the sea front a perfect place for a relaxing break.

The Gables was a house once occupied by the architect Ibberson and retains much of the original features which makes it an interesting place to stay. We were in room 1 although small it was clean and comfortable. It had a bath not a shower and hot water was plentiful. Bottled water and biscuits were a nice little extra. The... More
