we went over bank holiday week, weather was horrendous. Found it very easily, right on sea front. Very well maintained, was absolutely spotless. Our room (10) was small but perfectly formed, lovely touches like bath robes, chocolates on bed, and good quality ground coffee and biscuits. Huge shower in a lovely spotlessly clean bathroom. Proprietor (presume Tom) who greeted us, was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. They have a lovely lounge with newspapers and an honesty bar so you can sit and have a quiet drink looking over the sea. The breakfast was delicious. I am vegan and my husband vegetarian, normally I ask what they can do for me before I go but having read TA reviews knew I would have no problem. I had a huge dish of fresh fruit which was obviously made from scratch rather than tinned stuff, thick wholemeal seaded toast with rasperry jam, plus mushrooms, tomatoes and beans on toast, with fresh apple juice - we were stuffed. I spotted a room which had a sea view on the way out (ours did not) and it looked tremendous so would definitely consider paying extra for sea view next time we stay. Our room was also very warm and cosy which was great considering we had got a drenching in the rain when we were out and about. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back.
