nothing Flash but good Homely Place

Was comfortable with walking distance to the beach Caretaker was friendly and accommodating. Unit appears to be setup for disabled clients but fails with features Unit needs some maintenance and other features looked at 1. Door lock doesn't work properly 2. Range hood light did not work. 3. Only 1 light over the kitchen bench worked. 4. Shower is huge but needs a Grab rail on the wall for support and peace of mind 5. Toilet is positioned in the middle of the bathroom ( 1.8M wide ) and the the Grab rails fitted are way too far to far away from the toilet to be of any assistance for a disabled or elderly persons.( mounted on side walls ) Better Grab rail systems are available to suit these situations Fly screen wire in bathroom needs replacing Shower head system needs work A cosy , self contained unit for the traveler who doesn't mind it being quaint

Old dated rooms. No-one there to check in to room.

Booked online, got confirmation. Attended "Carmens Inn" just prior yo sunset to settle in for the night. No-one was there.. Walked around looking for notes or room.. nothing. Phoned "Carmens Inn" phone rung out. Drove to St Helens and looked around phoned again and finally got through. Drove back at night and got to an out dated stale smelling room. Will not use again nor will I recommend.

Simple, budget, good value.

Clean, comfortable facilities at an excellent price and close to beach. Could do with an upgrade to cooking facilities, but overall very good for the price. Owner very polite and helpful.
