You wouldn't recognise the charm of this accommodation from the outside but once inside this is a lovely B&B. All the rooms have a stoep with dining table and sitting area. The garden is lovely. Riders is situated within walking distance of one of the beaches. And the blue flag beach is just a five minutes drive away.

The accommodation is extremely comfortable, the ambience is great (with an obviously artistic owner) and the view of the town is lovely. However, no-one was there when we arrived - one young lady was left to run the place on her own for the weekend, and, try as she did, coping was simply not possible. First impressions count. We won't be returning.
