A little gem . Clean, bright and comfortable.”
A warm welcome given. Staff couldn't do enough for us- especially at breakfast. Rooms were spotless big and bright plenty of facility.
Well situated to explore although a lot of steps to the sea front when the lifts are closed. Would definitely go back.

A nice B&B in a good location. Car park was full but we managed to park in the road opposite the entrance. Very close to the Cliffs Pavilion where we were going for the evening. The staff are all very welcoming and helpful. We had a luxury double room which had everything you could want. The décor could do with some updating but everything was clean and tidy. We didn't have an evening meal so cannot comment on that. There was a good choice of breakfast options. The cooked items were all hot. There is scrambled egg on the buffet but they will cook poached or fried eggs to order. This was our first stay and we would definitely book again.

Comfortable and clean but decor dated and tired”
Bed, cooked breakfast and staff
overall our stay was very good, the only thing that lets the hotel down is the decor
