Perfect affordable location just across from the beach. Loads of free items to use while staying including bikes to ride on the beach, beach toys, DVDS and more. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

They were attentive and had everything ready to supply if needed. Even recent DVDs for a night in or Netflix. Lovely ladies and I would stay there again. The resident pooch is adorable and very good at soccer. A wonderful team that would be a great asset to the owner.

We loved our stay at By The Sea. It certainly lived up to it's fantastic reviews. The only thind I would maybe change when I book next time (and I definitely will be doing that) is book a room with more daylight. The cosi room was fine but we did need to have a light on during the day and in the night, the lights from outside the room made it a little too bright. Having said that, if there were no other rooms available I would still be happy to book the same again.
