Excellent self catering accommodation with well heated room for our winter visit. Good bed and all other necessary facilities for a short stay. Friendly owners who made us feel welcome and provided loads of useful local knowledge.

Our room was stylish, new and nice but although the bed seemed to be of good quality I had back pain the next morning. The owner showed us some spots to check out but was hurried and made us feel a bit unwelcome (maybe he had a bad day or so), and we (non English native speakers) could hardly understand what he was talking about (he was talking so fast because he was in a hurry). The elder lady at the reception desk the next morning however was very nice and made up for the missing friendliness from the evening before (that is why we give Very Good as overall rating instead of Average). There is a washing opportunity for extra charge.

The motel was a big surprise for us. We were assuming something at the beach would be very rustic. It's ultra chic and comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Loved the sleek modern feel. Well done!
