I love this Hotel and its excellent breakfasts, close proximity to the beach and town. We have stayed many times but not for the past few years and appreciated the refurbishments which had been carried out.

Somewhat dated looking and caters to older clientele (average age seemed to be about 75). Misleading room assignment (promised garden view looked into driveway and was in basement). Nice pool, close to beach, good breakfast.
