Great location for a short break. Good walk to town (15 minutes) along the beach path. Sleeping to the sound of the sea. Nice clean and big rooms. We had a balcony room overlooking the sea. The restaurant is open on Friday and Saturday night and the food is top shelf. Brekkie only on Friday and Saturday mornings but cool...

Stayed there for two nights over the long weekend. Prices are very reasonable. Rooms are quite basic but clean and comfortable. We had a room with a balcony and a view of the ocean. Great to see the sunrise from our room. Staff are very friendly. Would certainly visit there again.

The view from our Beach Level room might not have been as spectacular as the rooms above but it still has fantastic ocean views. Our room was spacious with a good size outdoor area.
