Cool, spacious and surf-inspired. This bright, sea view room has a high quality finish throughout and a modern ensuite bathroom.


Our Standard Rooms are equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. They are perfect if you are happy to enjoy sea views from Cove Restaurant or lounge, rather than your bedroom.

Dog Friendly Hotel

We realise that your dog is an important member of the family, and we know how hard it can be to leave your beloved four-legged friend at home when you set off for a trip away. This is why we welcome well behaved hounds for a charge of just £10 per dog per night.
