Charming, quaint old house, full of character filled with beautiful antiques. Had a lovely 5 night stay in our balcony room overlooking the pretty garden and river Lyn. Spotless rooms, generous breakfasts, unbelievably cheap for this value and service! We will be comming to The Captain's House next spring!

Me and my fiancee spent four days in The Captain's House. The house is very "english" and unique and the owners are amazing. They are ever so friendly! We have been here befor but we wanted to come back. Clifford told us where to go and we wish we could have stayed longer!

Thank you for my wonderful stay in this "Old World Charm" Guesthouse! What a stunning setting and beautiful room looking out over the river. I especially loved the Tea Garden with all the beautiful flowers! The breakfast was delicious and Josie and Clifford were very friendly and helpful. I'm looking forward to coming again to this delightful place!

Served by a most miserable chap. He wanted us to pay the bill before we had eaten. Table tipped on cobbled stones resulting in a broken cup/saucer. He wanted another £10 for damage. £5 is what he got.

I was really disappointed with The Captain's House as it does have some good things going for it - a great location overlooking the river and cliffs and an old fashioned, quirky English vibe that overseas visitors will no doubt lap up. However, for someone just after basic comforts at a reasonable price (I stayed for one night only while... More

Me and my parents stayed in this B&B and it reminded me of my granny's interior from donkey's years ago. I was not impressed having to share a shower on the hallway with other guests. The breakfast was good and so was the location.

We had a lovely stay at the Captains House. The host and his wife were really friendly, incredibly helpful and a goldmine of information. The hotel itself is full of vintage character and has a unique history soon to be immortalised by Hollywood! We recommend this place to everyone and would be happy to stay there again.

We received a warm welcome by the very friendly owner. The room interior was basic but thanks to the decoration and the little terrace in front of the house (where they serve cream tea) the place had a certain charme. There are 2 negative points I could name. There was no shower curtain, so you had to be very carefull... More
