I booked this a week before and Liz was extremely accomodating. She was friendly and helpful. The B&B itself is absolutely fine. No, it's not the ritz but we didn't pay for that did we?! It is clean and functional. Good shower, plenty of tea and coffee, a lovely breakfast and a friendly host. 2 min walk to the sea... More

We have just returned from a night here - my husband and have stayed in beer before and loved it! So we decided to end our easter break here again. This is the first b&b I have stayed in where I felt it was only open as a business - and not because they actually wanted anyone to visit beer... More

Beer is a nice little place. Nice pubs, good food and a lovely beach. We went and booked Ashdale House, as we needed a place for one night, which I'm sure is what many people do. I truly wish I hadn't booked this place, and urge potential customers to check all the reviews, good and bad, before booking. Our room... More

We were lucky enough to have the last family room at Ashdale House. Elizabeth, the owner, could not have been more welcoming. The room was small but was very bright and very clean with matching tea and coffee china - unusual in most B & Bs. The full English breakfast was cooked to order and delicious - all for £70... More

Ernie and Liz made us feel very welcome. They went that extra mile by helping us to plan the rest of our holiday. Liz even took us to the shop to help us find a gift for a friend. You can't buy caring. Anna and Wendy

We stayed recently in the family room with our two children. The room was very small and barely enough room to walk around the bed. I agree with some of the other reviews the carpet was grubby and musty smelling, the towels and bedding are very old and our bathroom mat was dirty. An update is needed on the furniture... More

We recently had the pleasure of returning to Ashdale bed and breakfast for a 4 night break and have to say what a pleasant stay myself and my partner had.
