Excellent location - just a few mins from the beach. We were in the superior room - tasteful, clean, airy. A biggie for me was the fresh smell, in particular the bedding. Many places are let down by the smell of the bedding, but here everything was clean and fresh. In the bathroom we found shower gel, shampoo, shower caps,...

A great hotel in a great location, the breakfast was a feast. The owners were so helpful, they even moved their own car as I couldn't find a parking spot. Clean & modern on a very quiet street but only metres from sea front. We shall return without a doubt, thank you 😀😀😀

Once again, our stay here has been superb, we've been coming here for the last 4 years, and the welcome we get from Kim and Hilary is so warm.
