The owners were the only good thing about this place, the rest is all down hill.
Parking outside of the hotel is very tight, watch how you get in and out of your car.
Reception, lounge and bar I am sure date back to the 1900's. The bedroom had a shower room added to it, and the floor sloped down. The decor and quality of furniture was out of date and poor.
Breakfast was nice with a good selection of things, this is what gives it a one star. Looking at previous reviews I can only say some people must be happy with poor accommodation, but I am not. My recommendation is don't stay here.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

The owners are very welcoming and helpful recommending places to eat and visit, breakfast was one of the best. The hotel itself is quite dated and seems to be very cluttered, maybe ok for older visitors

A very comfortable clean and well situated B&B. the couple that run and own the house were most welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were well appointed with everything you could possibly need. Breakfast was remarkably good and professionally served.
There is nothing adverse to comment about except parking where you need to be careful as space is limited, but safe.
Overall an excellent overnight stay and would recommend.

We stayed at Sea Breeze for my Husband's birthday from 12-15 April.

Annette and Richard were really welcoming and friendly. When we arrived back to the B&B after a day out on the Saturday they had left a birthday card and some chocolates for my husband, which was so sweet and thoughtful.

The breakfasts are awesome. There's a huge choice; you can either pick and mix your own full English from a wide selection or choose from a variety of lighter breakfasts (can't vouch for those as we went for the full English on all three days!).

Both Annette and Richard have worked in customer service type roles before they bought their B&B 7 years ago and it shows - they know how to make all of their guests feel welcomed and at ease.

The rooms are nicely and comfortably furnished and the bed in our room was more comfortable than our own bed at home! The rooms have a mini-bar and selection of snacks; a well stocked tea and coffee section with cookies and shortbread in a jar as well as fresh milk. They also supply bottled water free of charge. The towels are big, white and fluffy and the bed linen is lovely plain white cotton. Our room was spotlessly clean.

Sea Breeze is fully licensed and they have a well stocked bar with reasonably priced drinks. We spent quite a lot of time in the bar... Saturday night is a bit of a blur...

We had a lovely time at Sea Breeze and would definitely go back. Thanks so much to the lovely Annette and Richard.

My husband and I stayed for one night on Good Friday and we were bowled over with the hospitality that Richard and Annette provided.
After a gruelling 9 hour drive, we were made to feel welcome very quickly and spend the whole wonderful evening in the cosy bar with the owners and other guests chatting.
The excellent customer service started before we even arrived with a text wishing us a safe journey and even when we left a text to say thank you for staying.
Sea Breeze understands customer service and other establishments could learn a thing or two from these little but lovely gestures.

The beds were cosy and wonderful and we had the best nights sleep. Its was quiet and warm, just perfect.
The breakfast which you order the night before was great and we enjoyed the relaxed friendly comfortable atmosphere.

Richard and Annette are perfect hosts to run a B&B as they have it spot on.
Thank you for a very enjoyable evening and we cannot wait to return in the summer.
This is by far one of the best B&B's that we have stayed in.
