The floors here sparkle, the lighting is bright, the bedding is of decent quality and the bathrooms are immaculately clean and have a good hot shower. The owners are constantly making sure everything is spic and span. Unsurprisingly it's often full because it is so good in comparison to the rest while still being in the budget range. There are no views and no luxury facilities, just free fast WiFi, security bars on the windows, a location close to the pier and the confidence in knowing you'll be comfortable here. Booking online is slightly more expensive than walk in, but book ahead if you want to be sure of a bed. This is our top budget pick and it should please even the pickiest of budget travellers.
