We visited so we could attend gran's 80th. It was a restful place to stay after hours of travel. Really love the hybrid between b&b and self-catering. Loved the breakfast being brought to room! We'll definitely be back for a proper stay as we spent a lot of time going to see family etc.

We were greeted and made to feel very welcome by our hostess. The breakfast selection, room service and food presentation was excellent. The location is convenient and well located for visiting the beach or town area. Very good advice received for dinner and local tourist attractions. Lovely view in a relaxed and convenient environment
