The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming. Also very useful when it came to parking and local beaches, directions etc. The room was spacious...

Oh dear it was always going to happen one day, a city boy startled by that natural phenomenon known as the dawn chorus. I do know from experience that it also happens in towns and cities the main difference here is that it is not masked by traffic noise.
