We stayed two nights in Baywatch on the upper floor. We had a king Studio room which was spacious with a good décor. The bay windows gave a touch of class to the feel of the room however the view was only of the street and houses. The traffic noise was of such a level that we closed the two windows. Although we didn’t have any problem with the temperature, even on the hot days of our stay we could have used the heat pump if required. The quality of the room and the comfort of the bed could not be faulted. There is even exterior carpet laid on the stairs and walkway along the entrances to the rooms to keep foot traffic noise to a minimum. Cooking was only possible by microwave and there are no hot plates or cooking saucepans. The cutlery and crockery was limited to two of each item to suit the sleeping availability of the room. As explained in other reviews there is a huge range of eateries in the town and it is unlikely that you would want to cook in the room and the only need for the kitchen facilities would be for breakfast. It was good to be able to access the internet in our room on wife after we had registered in the office. The owners were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. In all, very good accommodation that we would have no hesitation in recommending to others

Stayed in a studio room at the Baywatch for an extra long weekend. Was great! All staff were very friendly, rooms were super clean, couldn't ask for more!

A little bit out of town but it's a nice walk and plenty of facilities close by. Free internet was also very handy.
Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Stayed in the studio room on the 1st floor, was great, not too much street noise at all and it came with a spa bath!

We stayed for a couple of nights and found our room and en-suite very clean and comfortable.
A 2 minute walk along the road to the left was the Cottage Garden Cafe where we had a very good breakfast in the garden - a definite plus

Perfectly acceptable room, clean and nicely furnished. Modern, neutral decor. Walking distance to restaurants and cafes. Swimming pool was small, but very clean. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. No hob in the kitchen.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Starting with awesome friendly hosts willing to help and making sure we were comfortable. The room had a good view, the location is quiet and central, walking distance to town and the beach. The free wireless internet was a great touch where so many other places charge for it. Will definitely stay here again when we are back in town.
