Brilliant time was had by all, lovely clean rooms and bathrooms. THE BEST breakfast you could ask for, lots to choose from. Phil and Julie make you feel so welcome and are just the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet, nothing is ever too much to ask of them. Can't wait to go and stay again.

Absolutely fantastic. Feel like we are staying with relatives or friends that we have known for years. Cannot complain about any of our time there. Rooms are great, along with the resident comedian "Arthur" Strongly recommended.

Situated not many metres from the prom, near to Central Pier it is ideal for all attractions. It will always be our first choice for a stay... More
