One of the friendliest places i've stayed. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and Margaret is so welcoming. We spent a lovely, relaxed evening in the bar area where nothing was too much trouble for the staff Cannot recommend highly enough!!

Great location if you like being close to the beach (2min walk). We were touring around the county and found it pretty easy and convenient to get out and in the city by car. Rooms seems like they've been recently refurbished, clean and warm. Very friendly and helpful owners

Is there any car parking spaces in front of the hotel
Hi Gordon, We have 19 rooms and only 5 spaces, which is why we don't advertise parking. If there is a space there you are welcome to it. There is free parking on the street and a car park only 3 minutes walk away. I hope this helps. Owen
