The owners were lovely and made us feel really at home! They were accommodating when it came to parking as normally it's a nightmare in the centre-letting is leave our car the next day after we'd checked out so we could have a walk before we left.

Excellent location. Short walk through a pleasant park to the seafront and just a few meters from the shops, bars and restaurants. The owners, Rob and Linda, are such nice and friendly people.
