We stayed overnight and we cannot recommend it too highly. The room was superb and very spacious. The Victorian/Edwardian(?) building with its modern decor gave us the feeling that we were in a special place. The decoration of the whole hotel was spotless and fresh. Breakfast was well presented, tasty and generous. The welcome was warm and the service efficient.... More

What a great little find! Friendly, professional staff, beautifully decorated rooms and public spaces. Yards from cliff top and close to the buzzing high street but with lovely gardens and parking. Everything was spotless clean and breakfast good quality. I will be back, thank you for a top stay.

We were so happy to find this small hotel that has the friendliest of staff, lovely rooms, very good breakfast, a wonderful garden and that is just a couple of hundred meters from the great sand beach. First we had only planned to stay one night, but having found this lovely hotel we really wanted to stay another night. Unfortunately... More
