Perfect location on the beach and seriously right next door to loads of cafés, the beach, restaurants and the esplanade. The room has a kitchenette which was handy. Nice décor and a nice large king size bed. No outlook as it is just the walkway at the door like the old fashioned motel style but that didn't bother us as... More

IT is an excellent location if you like to walk to shops, restaurants, beach. The rooms are well presented and spacious. There is a construction site next door which affected us as we stayed a sunday night, so the workmen and machines woke us at 6am monday morning. If you stay a saturday night, this wouldn't be a problem, or... More

It was only a short trip but good trip! One night only but I wasn't disappointed. Central and right on the beach, what more could I need. Just a little noisy at night due to the proximity of entertainment venues, but not a biggy. Very clean and well provisioned with a little kitchenette and supplies of coffee and tea. Will... More

We stayed overnight. Really clean rooms, little kitchenette with microwave, dishes, cutlery and tea pot available. The beds are comfortable, the toiletries in the bathroom are nice, even the hair drier is really good, not the cheapest you would usually find in apartments and motels. You can see that owners genuinely make sure you have a nice and comfortable stay.... More

Was only a overnight stay but the accommodation was of a very High Standard. Very comfortable beds all very modern not what I was expecting. Staff were lovely and happy to help in anyway. Walking distance to everything in the Town Centre. Straight across from the beach. Was perfect. Thank-you for a pleasant stay.
