Throughly enjoyed stay

Lovely hotel, quite a big room with a sea view.

Had dinner here in the evening then drinks outside looking out to sea. Food was really tasty and there were lots of drink options. Breakfast was great but the full English breakfast had no beans, staff made sure we had some when we asked. Hotel is really well placed, quiet surroundings and a short walk from the town. Would like to visit again.
