This was our first visit to the poltair. Our room was comfortable and was kept spotlessly clean and well stocked. Malcolm gave us a friendly welcome andnothing was too much trouble for him. Choice at breakfast was excellent and the food was always well cooked. We especially liked the choice of freshly made yoghurts.

Would we have gone back for a second time, never mind a sixth? Good on you Malcolm and staff (plus Oscar the cat) for such an outstanding performance. Poltair - unbeatable! Holidaymakers, give the rest a miss, and treat yourself to a stay at Poltair. Beachcomber is the pick of the rooms.

The Poltair is owner operated with a small friendly staff. I stayed in the Puffin room, it is a cosy single with refrigerator, a shower and sink in the room, and a bathroom just outside. The view of the sea is via the half-glass door leading onto a small shared balcony. When I was there the two rooms on either... More

Dear Trip Advisor readers We would like to thank Ninja P for such a super review. We are particularly impressed that the reviewer travelled such a long distance for her visit.

I have lost count now of the number of times I have stayed at Poltair, always excellent. Wonderful breakfasts, excellent position, close to both the beaches and town, superb value for money. Small and intimate, many of the people I have met there are also return guests, I find the staff go out of their way to ensure your needs... More

The proprietors were away on holiday, so the b and b is managed by caretaker staff. This was a return stay, and whilst the breakfast was delicious (esp the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon) I have to say that the room wasn't especially clean - particularly the bathroom. A previously used towel was hanging on the door and the floor... More

Dear Trip Advisor readers We would like to respond to the review from Karen S. First of all can we say how sorry we are that she was not 100% happy.

I stayed there for a night to attend an interview at the university the next day, and I couldn't be more satisfied with my time spent there.

The owner is very welcoming and accommodating as befits a man who attended to Show Biz stars. Some of whose photos are diplayed. Some might think it "twee and old fashioned" but it is really charming.

We've stayed at the Poltair and have reviewed it before, but the last was a while back and it should be said that Anne and Malcolm have maintained a very high standard consistently over the years we've visited. Everywhere is spotless and fresh, both the en suites and the sumptuously furnished bedrooms. You're made to feel welcome, from the personal... More
