She made conversation and when she found out I was here on business, she made sure I knew where I was going and how to get there. Room was spacious, well decorated and well equipped with the essentials. Breakfast... More

Nice b&b and friendly host who advised us of a local pub where we could take our dog, which had lovely food. Good breakfast and even catered for me as a vegetarian. Nice location as close to seafront so ideal for walking our dog
