In 1926 the Peerless Temperance Hotel. Now Beachtop Court flats with shop below. The exterior has been altered in the later C20, originally there were tripartite sashes to the ground floor flanking a doorway with curved pediment, and a triangular pediment over the first floor centre window.

Middle bay has 4-pane sash to upper floors; with moulded surrounds and keystones to second and third floor windows and triangular pediment to 1st floor window.
