From the outside it isn't the most attractive, but all very clean and tidy inside. We had a very small room - only there for one night so not the end of the world. The electric loo system is fine, but it kept cutting in all night, which was annoying. (We did advise the landlady.) En suite bathroom is miniscule, almost a cupboard, which is acceptable but not ideal. This was Room 2, so suggest if you plan to stay for more than one night you check which room you have. I think there are eight rooms.
Location is lovely, right on the Hoe, very close to the sea. Just around the corner is a proper fish and chip shop with a few tables - very budget-friendly and tasty and with great service.
Landlady and her mother are very friendly and welcoming and helpful. Parking is a little tricky - we were lucky as we arrived very early and bagged the only off-road space, but there is free on-road parking from 4.00pm.
Breakfast was excellent - all pretty good value, but I would have been happier with a £10 discount for tiny room and bathroom! (£70 per night)
