Excellent location and sea view. Close to station and beach, I could hear the owls and the sea as i fell asleep

Mediocre B&B

B&B is dated but clean with friendly owner. Attic room was small and en-suite cramped. Bed was comfortable but standard size. Choice of cereals, fruit and standard cooked english breakfast components - no other choices. A bit disconcerting to see owner's partner sitting on loo with door open doing a crossword!

Nice location but don't bother with the top floor

Nice location and staff, with a decent breakfast. But the top floor rooms with seaview were absolutely cramped and even charged at a premium. I even accidentally bumped my head on the roof pillar in the bathroom - my fault as there were warning signs.

Nice hotel, lovely location

We had a very pleasant 4 night stay, and used the hotel as a very convenient base to travel from. Excellent view from our room and very short walk to the beach and train station. Lovely breakfast to set us up for our days out too.
