    Lovely hosts who were most hospitable, going the extra mile when I was the only client for the evening. I booked this B&B last minute but read all the favourable TripAdvisor reviews before booking. It’s up the road from the North Pier and there were 4 car parking spaces at the rear of the property. It is a no-frills, basic accommodation (not hi-end) which is currently being refurbed but very much suited my needs; a small warm room with a double bed, toilet and ensuite. There are tea and coffee facilities, TV, no safe, but a pleasant room at an affordable price with a lovely breakfast provided to send me on my way. If you want a no-frills, basic, clean accommodation I recommend this establishment and if you are without a car the tram line into town is 5 minutes’ walk away as is the seaside. Many thanks to my lovely hosts who also pointed me in the direction of a local mechanic and garage who repaired my car. I would like to recommend this accommodation as I enjoyed my one night stay.

    The location of this hotel is brilliant, there is a tram stop a minutes walk away from the front door. With a 24hr hop on hop off ticket only £6 for an adult. The hosts Jane and Steve, are absolutely brilliant and were great with my little girl. Could not do enough for us all. The breakfast was fantastic. And plenty of it. There is a nice tele room, with a good selection of DVDs and a Nintendo wii with games. Would highly recommend to all.
