    Hi, planning to book for my 25th wedding anniversary next year, so it needs to be a special one! Looking for a sea view with as little noise as possible, so am I better off going for a higher floor, any block in particular? Also, if we go for the Breakfast option only, are there plenty of nice restaurants around locally for dinner?

    Hi there. By the Sea is a fantastic guest house. The sea views are only partial though to the side but it's seconds from the lovely sea front. It's only munutes from the Town with lots of eating places. Best wishes Andy
