Room was clean and tidy. A lovely breakfast. Hosts were lovely and welcoming. Hotel is just far enough away from the clubs and pubs without being miles away. Approx quarter of a mile to harbour. Cannot fault.

Had an excellent stay here, so good we've already booked for next year! Good breakfast set us up for each fun packed day out. Carl and June really good hosts, a wealth of local knowledge helping us to plan our days out. Walking distance to the sea front, theatre and many fine eating establishments. Highly recommended!!
