Hayley and Nick made us feel very welcome and also in these COVID times reassured that they were taking care of everyone staying with them. Breakfasts were great and the location is good for both beaches and restaurants. We stayed in room for 2 adults and 1 child and while it is a small room (as the picture clearly shows) there was sufficient room for us at the times we were in and the room was clean and quiet, with a good shower to wash off sand for the day.

Well decorated and clean guest house with guest parking. Nicely situated just a few minutes from town and beach with nearby bus stop. . Made very welcome by Nick and Hayley and nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay perfect. The rooms we had were well appointed and very comfortable. Top quality breakfast, beautifully cooked with a varied menu that should cater for all tastes. We had the best time and will return.

Rooms comfortable, Nick and Hayley very friendly but not intrusive. Very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast quickly served and very tasty. Lovely atmosphere and fantastic value for money. Good central location, easy to reach both beach and town from there. Recommended 5*, happy to return.

Hayley and Nick were warm and friendly hosts from first moment of arrival and nothing was ever too much trouble. Rooms were lovely, spacious and clean with lots of storage space and my single room was amazingly big. Breakfast was great, with lots of choice and options; with a small bar open in the evenings for drinks. Overall an absolutely lovely stay with my parents which we all enjoyed. Would definitely recommend!
