This is a really beautiful place that offers free cancellations. Families love Delamere Court since it is only a 2-minute walk from the beach. What makes this place so unique is that the hotel is one of the last great Italianate Victorian villas, in the whole area. That means that the property still remains with its total original grounds. This is quite rare since not many places offer such special sea views in the bay.
