Susan, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Really lovely place to stay and the owners Roger and Alison were so friendly and welcoming. Only negative was that the rooms got chilly after the heating went off in the evening and before it came on in the morning. I'm used to wrapping up under a fleece blanket at home but outside of the bed it was cold particularly in the bathroom area.

When you find a little gem you sometimes want to keep it to yourself, but this little hotel deserves to be full all the time.Well situated, parking right outside and a stroll to the beach.Very welcoming reception, very comfy room,big bed and fabulous breakfast.
