The rooms are spotless with fantastic views of the sea, and the en-suite is very modern. The shower is powerful and spacious. After a good nights sleep, you...

We stayed at The Ellenby for the last two nights and cannot recommend this little gem highly enough. John and his wife ensure that everything you need is available and cook the most amazing breakfasts to order. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. We were on the third floor and whilst no problem for us it is worth discussing...
