Ed was very welcoming when we arrived and gave us a room from which we could see our parked car. There isn't gated parking... More

We had a really great stay here, both Ed and Alan were very friendly and helpful. The location is good and with a short drive or bus journey you can get in to town or to one of the many beautiful beaches in the area. The rooms were clean and well looked after with a nice kitchen and terrace area... More
