We stayed for 2 nights and weren't disappointed; our hosts Colin and Sue could not do enough for us, the whole place was immaculately clean, the beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfasts are to die for .. It's in an ideal location; just a 5/10 minute walk around the corner and you are by North Pier and the Tower...

We couldn't have booked a nicer place to stay, it was spotless clean and Colin and Sue couldn't have been any nicer or more helpful. The location was five minutes from the front and five minutes from the tower.
