We thought we had died and gone to heaven when we found this place, and couldn't believe our luck in finding it! Fortunately, we were able to switch our room to a room which overlooked the ocean for an extra fee ( something we couldn't resist on arrival ). Every staff member we met was lovely, and one kind gentleman...

The Beach House is one of my all-time favorite places to stay. Everything about it is lovely and relaxing - from the incredible views to the wonderful breakfast, tea time and wine and cheese. You can't go wrong staying here!

My wife and I spent 2 nights here in November. Very cozy inn with a great self-serve breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Best of all it is right on the ocean. Very clean and comfortable room.

The staff were all most helpful and welcoming. The room was large and comfortable and light with a nice view. The breakfast was very good, plentiful and varied. The location, right across from the beach, is a major plus. There is ample parking behind the inn. We would be very happy to go back another time.

We only stayed one night. The location is great. There is a big car park around the back, next left past the Beach House. The building is lovely, with a porch and large downstairs space and a breakfast room. It is directly opposite the beach. I loved the location. It was very quiet and peaceful. We arrived late afternoon and...

The inn is very nice with a lovely porch and indoor "living room" type seating area. Across from the ocean so the more pricey rooms have a water view. Our room was nice and clean, but very small as was the bathroom. The breakfast was also nice, with the expected eggs, sausage, assorted breads and very small selection of fruit....

Booked the Beach House four months ago for an October leisure stay on Booking.com .
