I recently stayed here with my partner, we were treated very well by Paolo and Paul, It was an end to the first holiday without the children (now adults ?? apparently ) and they made it a great pleasant stay with a nice treat left in our room. The room was great with tea and coffee making facilities, and the view of the sea was pleasant too. The breakfast was great with such a huge variety to choose from, Overall a great place to stay for however long you wish to stay there for. I would not hesitate in booking again !!

Stayed in room 8, lovely size with sea views, hotel had parking and only a short walk to the beach. We were greeted by paolo who was great and friendly. We had a great sleep bed was really comfortable. Lovely large soft towels, tea, coffee tray neatly arranged with fresh milk in the fridge Breakfast, well I think it's the best quality i have had for such a long time when staying away from home with a great selection. The sausages, bacon cooked nicely, hash browns nice and crisp, the orange was flowing with Paolo who added the great service. Would defo stay here again unless I buy my own b and b Thanks to the team, the chef, the housekeeper and all others that made our stay fantastic Cheers

We have an excellent stay. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and they would do anything to make our stay even more pleasant. We had room 2 which was clean and spacious and overlooked the garden. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The prior night we filled in a form for what cooked items we wanted and cold items were given out as a buffet at the time. There was hand sanitisers everywhere, including in the room, and we were even provided with a mask for trips out if we had forgotten our own. Nothing negative and we will be staying in the future. Spacious off-road parking is also available and it is only a short 5-10 mins down hill walk to the seafront and beach and a 15 mins walk to the old village.

Lovely clean room with bath robes and slippers to use in addition to the nice fluffy towels, as well complimentary water in the fridge along with fresh milk for tea/coffee. Paulo and team were great and went above and beyond to make our stay special. We are vegan and they ensured we had oat milk and vegan sausages for our breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. Paulo looked after us very well at breakfast in the lovely breakfast room and provided a very personalised service. Great location and we would highly recommend
