    I suppose it depends what you're looking for. Sure, it's not cheap, but if you're looking for cheap stay in the travelodge (if there is one). If, on the other hand, you're looking for a getaway, some respite from the madness and some indulgent comfort,...More

    A fantastic place to stay. The house is on a beautiful square near the old town, 10 minutes walk from the seafront. Up an atmospheric staircase to a wonderful light bedroom, with an incredible bathroom, and in the morning a breakfast fit for kings. Who...More

    Looks like my prefect B&B but I can see no mention of children - so I guess they are not encouraged -which is fair enough but it would be helpful to say so. Thanks Jon

    We offer a £30 discount to room rates midweek (Sun-Thurs). That would currently be to £130. Check in time is 16.00, check out is 11.00. Thank you!
