Fabulous b&b in quiet seaside town. Modern, clean, but also homely. Comfy bed and great hosts. Couldn't work the tv as there were 3 remotes so clearer instructions needed with labels on remotes please.

I liked the modern décor, and quality furniture. The options for breakfast covered all tastes. Friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant surroundings. An improvement to the room would be the addition of a writing desk, and instructions for turning the bed lamps on and off.
