Three nights spent in this guest house and we will certainly be returning . Clean , friendly , warm and a lovely breakfast . Can highly recommend it . The owner Tim couldn't do enough for you . Brilliant service and the fact that you can pick from a menu for breakfast is an added bonus .

This Guest House is located at the end of the beach and gives a very pleasant walk to the town along the prom. We arrived earlier than planned but this as no problem for the hosts. The room was excellent, the food top draw with plenty of choice at breakfast.

Stayed at the Florida for 3 nights, absolutely amazing accommodation for the price paid. Nothing was too much trouble for Tim the host or the girls that help run this hidden treasure. As for the breakfasts, I don't think we have had better over many years staying in B&Bs. Will definitely be returning in the near future.
