If what you want from a hotel is an immaculate, well designed, homely room with friendly and accommodating hosts in an exceptional location then you must stay at the Shoreside Inn.
We were greeted in the car park as we arrived, by Andy, who immediately made us feel extremely welcome. Having shown us to our room Andy took the time to recommend some local restaurants and some places to visit.
The hotel boasts a seafront position which means that not only was the view beautiful from the bay window but the sound of the sea was included free. The room was spotless and my wife particularly loved the free standing bath where she could wallow whilst watching and listen to the sea.
The whole hotel is tastefully decorated including the bar and food area and like the room everywhere was immaculate.
Breakfast was top notch and the choice should cater for everyone. The service was spot on. Andy would have a chat before your food arrived but then leave you in peace to eat your breakfast. Jo meanwhile was in the kitchen producing the delicious feast.
We also made a point of having a sandwich in the bar at lunchtime and got the opportunity of chatting more to Jo which was nice. A really friendly and genuine couple.
My biggest compliment to Jo and Andy would be that when we left we felt we were leaving friends. We hadn’t made it to the bottom of the road before we were trying to work out when we could make another visit.
Thank you Jo and Andy for a great stay.
