Nice B&B hotel. Area is great too. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Recommended for a transit stay!

4/10 Fair

Location by the beach was nice but the place needs help. We had to fight ants all night and we were on the top floor. The safe didn't work. It was impossible to lock the unit from the inside! No elevator but the staff will carry your luggage. When we checked in, they asked us what time and where we would like breakfast. On our terrace at 9 was the answer. At 9:30 I called to ask where our breakfast was and they had no idea we were supposed to have it!

The rooms were smaller than expected, going by the photos on the website, a bit dated, but clean & tidy. The staff were wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was nice and the view out the front was gorgeous! Thankyou
