Stayed here on a last minute decision as a result of the lovely weather. Nice staff at check in. Room very spacious, clean, quiet and relaxing. We had a family room. Breakfast was good. Beach just across road. Apple green next door. Have already recommended to numerous friends & family. Best nights sleep I've had in a hotel/motel in a long time. Worthy of its TripAdvisor recognition.
