Arriving after a nightmare drive on the M27 (Are they all lunatics) Gill was waiting with a strong cup of tea and helped with the parking of the car. She also gave us a rundown on the local restaurants before taking us to our room. There she explained how the shower worked and asked what time we would like breakfast.... More

I happened upon The Pier by chance 5 years ago and have chosen to stay here for every annual visit since. Owner Gil ensures that everyones stay is pleasant, has personal touch around her home, such as fresh flowers in each room. It is an old building so expect the rooms to match but Gil maintains them to high personal... More
