Besides setting a tent up on the beach, there is truly no-where closer than The Rocks. We have stayed there twice over the past two years, and I would not stay anywhere else. The owners are very down to earth people, happy and willing to help with anything or simply have a chat. Rooms are surprisingly spacious and always immaculate.... More

This was a last minute booking, after reading the reviews I expected them to be full at such short notice, I think it was a cancellation but for 2 of my 3 night stay they had a room. I turned up having booked nowhere for the third night and the owners, who are the loveliest couple with children who help... More

Spent a 3 night Spring break in The Apartment at the Rocks Hotel. A Christmas present from our Daughter, Husband & Grandson. Everything you could wish for in the Apartment with some delicious treats on our arrival. Extremley clean & colourful. A short walk to the beach plus your own parking space! Wendy& Martin were very friendly & helpful.

The breakfasts are always spot on, and you only have yourself to blame if you leave hungry. Perfect location as you are less than 5 mins from the beach. Also they have their own parking, which is...
