The centre acts as a B&B for people participating in water sports. It is run as a charity and could do with a little more of a commercial/professional approach as given the location and captive market it should be a little gold mine.
Bedrooms are clean and bright the beds are suitable for teenagers not adults. The showers etc clean and servicable. Breakfast is generous but the same every day, scrambled eggs, tinned tomatoes, bacon and the ubiquitous industrial sausage complete with plastic skin ( gosh I really hate cheap meat!). For lunch you will have to visit one of the local cafes non of which are brilliant.
The bar has great views across the harbour and serves a decent pint.
