Moved to the Cottonwood Hotel - Ocean View closed
I was advised by staff at the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel that their sister hotel, the Ocean View Hotel was closed due to maintenance. So I can not give you feedback for that stay. However, I was given a room at the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel instead. Normally when I stay at the Cottonwood Hotel it is for a break and I always book the ocean view room. I had stayed on the Friday and Saturday I was put in a small double at the back of the building, so decided to book a double at the Ocean View for Sunday night because their doubles are bigger and the cost was a little less. So after finding out that the Ocean View was closed, I was upgraded from a double to ocean view twin room. The staff and management at the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel are always smiling, warm and welcoming and go the extra mile with service. I really appreciate that and always look forward to my stay.

Barely saw any staff, vending machine empty, shower didn’t work (shower head too full limescale) other that that was ok. Was on beach front so had a good view. They said free parking but when we arrived had yo pay £10 a day (3days =£30) quite a bit extra on top of bill.
Quite cosy at night
With a balcony
Quite big!
