Lovely hotel

Lovely hotel; friendly staff - enjoyed our stay, although I could not locate the hair dryer. Room was slightly cramped, but very clean. Disappointed that it was only a continental breakfast, so we went to nearby David’s - fantastic food.

Thank you Kristy! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. You may have missed the hairdryer which is stored in it's own little bag. We hope we will see you again next time you visit the coast.

Manager from hell

Im 77 my friend is 70 we went to bed early and woke up around 10pm. We were sitting at the table talking and at 11pm we got a call from the manager carla saying we were too loud and we got a complaint. I said we are just talking she said its 11pm its time to turn in. When my daughter called because I was so upset she said i was lying and she never said it. I dont go to over priced hotels with old lumpy mattresses to be told when to go to bed.

Diane, I am sorry some guests are more sensitive to sound than others. We do have a quiet time at 10:00 p.m. and if guests are outside it may bother other guests. I hope you and your friends were able to chat the night away sharing good times with one another. Thank you for staying with us.
