We were made very welcome and it is the friendliest place we have been to. The location is excellent with good car parking facilities. The heated pool is a real bonus with sun beds all around. The new owners and staff are very helpful and will do anything for you.

We arrived early and received a warm welcome. The guest house has a warm homely atmosphere. The staff were always helpful and friendly. I loved that it was a family hotel. My daughter loved the pool table and the heated pool, which was always clean and warm, with towels provided. Breakfast has a good variety of choice and was cooked... More

Stayed here for the bank holiday weekend, very welcoming hosts couldn't be more helpful. Good location, 5 minutes from beach. Room spotless, if a little dated. Breakfast 1st class and served with a smile. Ample parking. Would highly recommend.

Conservatory lovely to sit and have breakfast. All the staff bright and breezy. Would definitely recommend . Ideal situation. Short walk to sea front. The let down was the weather. Ha ha.
