Suzanne Greenop

23 June 2009 Suzanne would recommend this property

Liked: Lovely apartment-style accommodation sharing with only a few others. A real homely feel - great bedrooms complete with teddies on beds! Clean bathroom and sociable kitchen/diner and lounge areas. Only a short walk to the main street with shops and cafes, although a bit further to get to the supermarket I recall. Bicycles available to borrow - nice for a ride along the seafront down to the pier.

Disliked: Suzanne left no negative feedback.
