A lovely clean place with very friendly hosts. Breakfast was amazing. Would def stay again. Only downfall was a very small shower space. Room was comfortable and we had a good view over the bay. Bed was comfortable and well presented. Close to other towns and beaches. Good fish and chips a short walk away.
