Walking on the promenade leading to the cliffs on a sunny day is particularly pleasant and provides some amazing panoramic views of the coast. A dream accommodation location would therefore be around this area, between the cliffs and the beaches, to enjoy a great dose of nature on a daily basis.

After a lovely walk along the coast, various activities await visitors in the city centre, especially around Old High Street, lined with shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés, as well as cultural venues.

Cheap hotels are easy to find in the town centre, making visits and transport easy and convenient. For families with children, some of them even include family rooms and free parking, which is a must if you are using or renting a car to explore the town and surrounding region.
