Beautifully appointed, extremely clean, more than your average in terms of the hospitality tray, very clean, breakfast was a hoot with the very friendly Leanne. Loved the wholemeal toast, as an earlier reviewer noted, the full English and the omelettes were excellent. The stairs , all 49, were great for exercise ; a little tiring though, but we were well aware of this before arrival.
Only small downsides were the smallness of the room and therefore the bed, which was a little small for a man of my stature (6ft and the same wide ), but very comfortable nonetheless, and a bit of a squeeze to get around the bottom of the bed. Room was stuffy but not so as to affect my sleep. The point made by a prior reviewer about the noise the gulls make is churlish in the extreme. What do you expect for the seaside?
Anyway, we will definitely be back.
Thank you very much.
