The staff were very friendly and happy to offer suggestions and made our stay very pleasant. The room had character, the bed was comfortable and we'll return for the jacuzzi tub - with sky lights - alone! The place is clean, a little worn as some reviewers have said, but in a lived in rather than threadbare way, and there are luxurious touches without it being snobby. It definitely has a Britishy, country garden, feel to it. The cookies provided are very moreish (fortunately they offered us some to go!) and there was a wonderful breakfast selection, from cold cereal and fruit to different breads, pancakes, eggs and sausage. We enjoyed taking our coffee out to the swing in the gazebo and watching the squirrels and brook after breakfast. The place is a very short drive or decent enough walk to downtown restuarants and shopping, but I'd advise driving to the beach. You can hear the traffic noise but we chose to tune it out. We're already planning a return trip.
