Positive Reviews

What a position

Sandcastle Inn is in great location right on the beach. You can be there with just a few steps and if you are lucky you might see whales and dolphins from the pier. There is lots to do within walking distance as well, including shops and restaurants. There is plenty of parking too.

Room with a view

The ocean-facing guestrooms are great. They are quite spacious and have balconies which look directly out onto the beach and the sea. It's a lovely vista to wake up to in the morning.

Helpful and friendly

Staff here are great. They will greet you warmly and be affable and approachable throughout your stay. They will do their best to ensure you are enjoying your stay and can deal with any problems or queries that you have in a swift and efficient manner.

Negative Reviews

A bit stuffy

The lack of air-conditioning in guestrooms can be a problem, particularly in the summer. There are fans available, but they don't always do enough to cool rooms down to a pleasant temperature.

An update would be good

While happily clean, Sandcastle Inn does feel a little rundown in places. The facilities are tired and a bit of a freshen up would do the world of good. The carpets are a bit worn and some of the furniture is definitely past its best.

Room disparity

While several of the guestrooms are great, with good amenities and a beautiful view of the ocean, others aren't as good. You might not get a decent vista and may be disappointed with the facilities.
