Or is there another explanation for the fact that full payment was taken from my credit card 12 DAYS before our stay when we were on a 48 hour no-charge cancellation deal? Might explain why 5 teabags were supposed to last 2 people 48 hours too. Both members of staff we met were friendly - and the sea view was...

It has been recently given a fresh lick of paint and whilst the accommodation is basic it was clean and the service was friendly. The building has previously served as student halls and whilst its been given a bit of a spruce up you can still see...

We were given a seafront double which we were thrilled about...until we stepped in...

A sea view room is obvioulsy nicer than one at the back of the building, but there is more noise at the front, being on a busy sea front. The rooms were small but VERY clean and tidy, which...
