We enjoy what we do and value all guests that stay.
Under new management. In our short time here we have already made so many friends. From one night stays to a full holiday. The guests are given the same care and consideration. Its a joy to work and spend time with friends old and new.
Skegness has so much to offer, its a lovely place for both young and old to visit. The beautiful beach and Nature reserve are close by. We are also close to the Nature land Sea Life Centre and are a short walk to the Embassy Theatre.
