We stayed in a twin room for 3 nights booked through booking.com. We had to check in by ringing a mobile number but the process, although impersonal, was easy enough. Our room was right at the top, a little unfortunate that only one window opened making it quite hot but there was at least a fan. The room itself was clean & tidy and the shower room although small was perfectly adequate for what we wanted. Anyone who stays must remember to take a full set of toiletries including soap as none is supplied in the room but the usual tea/coffee facilities are there. Be aware though that if you use a hairdryer there isn't a plug socket near the mirror which is a little frustrating and the TV only plays ITV. It perhaps would have been nice to have had the room cleaned every other day but having stayed in a few guesthouses across the country its a little hit and miss in that respect. Breakfast was good with a decent amount of choice, an excellent array of fresh fruit, yogurts & cereals as well as full English breakfast, bacon/sausage butties and smoked salmon. The usual tea/coffee and fruit/herbal teas alongside a range of juices made it a good start to the day. There is a parking permit included in your little welcoming pack which, considering the price of parking, is a nice touch but it would have been nice to have some 2014 leaflets of the area rather than those from last year. Be aware of the seagulls, yes this is a seaside place, but the seagulls are extremely noisy especially at night. On the whole you get what you pay for, if you want something superior I would suggest you stay at some overpriced hotel, if not and you just need a place to sleep and a good breakfast then this place is perfectly acceptable.
