The atmosphere was warm and friendly. She was very helpful and my room was perfect. It was lovely and airy and the bed... More

I had a lovely stay at the Homestar. It was absolute value for money, comfortable stay and breakfast was great, so much choice. I had a single room, it was quite small but more than adequate. Kath was very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

A nice welcome upon our visit. Very polite. The room was of a good size and clean. The cooked breakfast was average. But plenty of other things to have. It's in a great location with the town centre and beach a very short walk away.Overall I found our visit pleasant and will stay here again on our next visit

It didn't effect out stay as I don't tend to eat breakfast and took my little one out for it instead! Staff friendly, although at times... More
