The Briers Country House
Room was very dated. Bathroom needs refurbished and shower was very weak. Toilet push button was missing. Toiletries provided okay. Very limited TV channels. Tea available in lounge but none in bedrooms.

Relaxing country B&B
The hotel is in the edge of town so not an easy or safe walk walk to the beach. The local taxt company are fantastic and all local journeys are £3 but those prices are set to rise soon. Though the staff and host were very friendly the bathroom were very tired and the quality of the food wasn't the best. It was just ok for breakfast considering the cost. If they spent a little extra on bread for example it would make an improvement. The beds and pillows were not that comfortable either. Would I stay again? Probably not.
