Great little b&b, friendly owner, friendly cleaner. Had everything we needed for a one night stay. Clean rooms, tea/coffee making facilities, comfy chairs and table in my room. So close to the sea and quiet at night. Would stop there again.

Lovely, warm, clean accommodation. Owner very friendly. Had everything we needed for a lovely comfy stay! Parking available. Located right by the beach, fair and cafes. Short walk to the town. Nice seating area outside, unfortunately the weather wasn't great but had a lovely break!

I always enjoy staying at Bayside, Les welcomes with a smile and has plenty of reliable suggestions for dinner and drinks. Fantastic value and quite literally a stones throw from the beach. Staying in a double we had a nice hot shower en-suite and full tea/coffee making facilities. What more could surfers want in winter?!

Looking from the outside we were a bit apprehensive as it looked tired and dated and it was no different on the inside. The stairway walls were dirty and marked.

I love people like you!!! You book the cheapest place in the area and expect gold taps and butler service! The stair walls have a few marks on them at the level where people hit them with their cases etc. We redecorate this every winter. The furniture is not old and dated as u say, as all can see from...
