This is a character property with high ceilings and the guest breakfast room and two main bedrooms have unobstructed sea views. We furnish mainly with antiques and character items...and individual furnishings. We source our food locally and have an interest and growing knowledge of the area. All of our rooms are warm and comfortable, are ensuite and include breakfasts. The more expensive rooms have larger ensuites or sea views etc but all of our rooms are the same quality with down duvets and soft towels. We took over the business in August 2021 from the previous owners. Our desire and intention is to maintain and improve upon the exceptional standard of accommodation and meals within an exquisite environment.
Metin & Eleanor are both passionate about hospitality and nothing pleases them more than a guest who has had a relaxing break and leaves satisfied with their holiday experience.
This is a quiet neighbourhood...a short flat walk away from the shops and some very lovely restaurants. We face the sea and promenade and although there is a road in front this gives ease of access and of course we are on a bus route. We are lucky enough to have an arrangement with the Norton House Hotel for your car parking. This is a one minute walk away. Why not visit them for a drink in their gorgeous bar or enjoy a meal in their lovely restaurant.
