Near the pier and on the esplanade. Handy for the town and with parking easy to use. The building is quirky and attractive though the scaffolding was a shame even if needed. The room was comfortable and had all we expected as amenities. The owner was helpful and the welcome was warm. The breakfasts were also delicious.
