8,8 Excellent
Pros: Hosts very friendly, Excellent breakfast! Very comfortable room, outdoor space nice. Quiet location
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were lovely and told you things to see and do and places to eat in the area. We had been in the area but quite a few years ago and things change. Lovely gardens and driftwood village and gnomes. Quite magical, particularly lit up at night! Breakfasts are wonderful and can keep you going until an early supper. Bed was very comfortable.
Cons: There are 2 rooms which share a bathroom at the top of a small landing so you are in close quarters if there is a snorer in the other room. The fan provided - there is no AC which really isn't necessary as at night it cools down - is effective but noisy. We certainly knew that it was a shared bathroom and it wasn't an issue when we were younger but is tougher when older.

7,0 Good
Pros: Right on the beach, quiet and clean. We love this location and have been here multiple times.
Cons: Because of the material of building construction floors on bottom floor are cold in the winter. Floor mats would have been helpful.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very well equipped, with a full kitchen. One side opens onto a beautiful garden against the sea - a spectacular location, and very good value.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The ocean view is spectacular with beach access. Spacious accommodations with fresh beachy cottage feel. I didn’t expect a kitchen and was pleasantly surprised. It had all I needed.
Cons: Parking is a bit tight and immediately off the highway. You have to back out onto the highway. Awkward but doable. It can’t be helped.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I was pleasantly surprised by the size and condition of the room. Crisp and clean. The balcony was spacious and the unobstructed view was beautiful.
Cons: A bit of road noise, but there was a door that separated the kitchenette and bedroom. Once that was closed it was relatively quiet. There is little to fault this sweet little hotel.
5,4 Okay
Cons: The room was cold when we got there. Took till the middle of the night to warm up. The bathroom tub taps need repacing and tub drain plug would get knocked by running water and water pressure was poor.

Pros: Comfortable and clean
Cons: Parking a bit of a test getting out on street due to other cars obstructing vision
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very spacious and clean . Location couldn’t be any better for us . And the private beach was gorgeous !
