so very close to the beach, which is hard to find anywhere access via steep narrow stairs was the only issue we had with the room

I loved it. Just one thing spoiled it: there are very steep steps up to the accommodation. My two chihuahuas were petrified and would not go up or down. I had to put them in a beach bag and carry them. Lovely big room with sea view; all the staff so pleasant and helpful: choice and quality of breakfast first class. I would love to go again …but the stairs. I am almost 90 and had to take care myself, without carrying the dogs. Lovely place!
