Great location and hosts
Bar shut due to Covid
Room was very clean and cosy, bed very comfortable. Sea view which was lovely. Little things like milk and water in fridge was bonus, tea and coffee making facilities in room and nice biscuits. Very good breakfast next morning, owners very friendly and welcoming
Room was warm, clean and comfortable, all expected touches were present, shower room was small but adequate. Its position is very close to the beach, within sound of the surf. Pleasant staff. Breakfast nicely cooked.
The very recent separation of the business into two parts (pub and B&B) is not very successful. After a good lunch in the pub part, no dinner was available in the evening; the entrance to the B&B terraced cottage is down a very shabby passageway shared with the next-door property; any bedroom except that on the ground floor is up steep narrow stairs; the hall was piled with laundry bags; to go to breakfast I had to leave the cottage and go round the corner to the pub entrance (fortunately not raining); and although the English breakfast was nicely cooked, there was only orange juice and cereal available and absolutely no Continental option such as pastries, croissants, fresh fruit, etc. Marmalade and honey were provided but Marmite was only on request and brought down from the owners' flat above.
Parking is an issue especially when weather is bad as stones get thrown from sea and also there are parking restrictions. Lots of stairs
Lovely welcome from the owner, lovely clean comfy room with a wet room and we had a sitting room overlooking the sea with tasimo coffee machine and fresh milk. 2 tvs one in each room. Fabulous breakfast in the lovely restaurant overlooking the sea. Would definitely book again
