Was in a good place close to shops and restaurants. The beach was across the street. The decor was a little out dated but very clean. Was a little cold, with parking off the road. Good value for money.

...and location is the best of it. Been here 5 nights and had to ask them to clean the unit as well as get clean towels. The only reason we got those was because I put the dirty ones outside the front door. Customer service negligible. Oh, and don't ask for a facecloth or handtowel, they're just not provided. As...

Couldn't be simpler to get in, you just get given the key to the glass slidingdoor, no fuss no muss, no sermons no rules. Everything there, self-catering kitchen, paper towels, extra bed, nice and quiet, practical, parking.

Our children were delighted with our room, booked over Wotif and ready when we arrived. We the parents loved not sharing a room with the kids! Rooms were well stocked with soap, towels, coffee, milk and tea equipment. Decor clean, quirky although a little down at heel. Staff were very helpful and found us an essential coffee plunger when asked....

When we arrived we had to ring a doorbell there was no reception that you would enter. We were greeted by a young man very laid back perhaps a little too laid back considering this is a business, he handed us a key. There were two of us (singles) so I was shocked to see how tiny the room was...

When we first checked in, we were impressed, but it stopped there. The manager handed me a key and said the room was down there. When tried yo open the door, the key would not work until many attempts. He told me there was so mething in side the lock, so he would have to have it replaced at some...

Facilities awkward and unit very cramped. Décor resembled opshop or garage sale. Only net curtains on windows. No soap. Wardrobe inaccessible. Advertised with satellite tv - understood that meant Sky, but no! The only chairs were tiny ones at a table. Had to sit on the bed. Woman who answers the bell very keen to help and pleasant, but never...

We arrived early and no one was here just a phone to call them to come give us a call. The owners said there was an unfortunate thing happen to their family recently which made up for no one here. They were noce to come in early so we could leave our bags here so we could explore. The window...

We arrived on a very cold night, told to park round the back which was a bit squashed, I couldn't get the panel heaters to go, but found a small fan heater which was just adequate. Shower opens off the lounge/hall, bedrooms a bit of a squish, but clean and tidy. Internet on vouchers is not very convenient, and had...
