Please note that we are a dog-friendly hotel. A charge of £10 is made (for cleaning) to have your dog stay in the bedroom, payable on arrival. Please let us know if you intend to bring your pet. Dogs are also permitted in the public areas of the building except the Darwin room.

There is no on-site car parking at The Waterfront Inn – most of the properties along the seafront have limited space around them and a cliff behind. However, there is plenty of street parking directly in front of the guest house, which is free of charge from 6pm until 10am. During the day, between 1 April and 31 October, the Council makes a charge of between £1.50 and £7.00 depending on the length of stay.
