Wasn’t for us. Most of the local restaurants were closed, no dogs on the beach, not comfortable to watch tv when it’s raining. Private parking isn’t private as it’s shared as is the outside seating area.

We had a wonderful stay for my mum’s 80th. It is really well located close to the beach and amenities and a great base for exploring the north east. It is close to a main road so there is noise but nothing excessive. The kitchen is small and not suitable for cooking meals on but for breakfast and lunch was more than adequate and worked well for us! We will be returning.
