66small What a great place to stay! Wonderful friendly welcome. Room was small, but we were only sleeping there for 2 nights! Ensuite bathroom a bit dated. Wifi free. We were able to park at the door. In saying all this, location is great, walking distance to beach & restaurants. Very good value for money. I shall return! 29 February 2016 99small
