What a wonderful find this place is, Andre and Apinya are both very welcoming and friendly, the room was spotless and the little extra touches like shower gel and shampoo were a lovely surprise. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tailored to our particular tastes. We would not hesitate to recommend this little gem. Su & John Sedgley Bridgwater

Wonderful welcome with coffee and cake to restore our energy after a long day travelling down to Torquay. Spacious, comfortable bedroom; extensive, lovely breakfast. Very attentive and chatty owners! Location within easy walking distance of the centre. Parking a little tight on site, but no problems for us. Street parking available. Looking forward to returning again for a relaxing stay.... More

Stayed for two nights in this lovely B&B. Room was very clean and tidy. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was good, both the continental and english breakfast. Location of the B&B is great, on a quiet road, short walk away from the beach and the town centre.

Everything about the place is perfect, the hosts are lovely, helpful and polite, the rooms are clean, tidy and well kept and the breakfast is fine regardless of what other reviewers may think about the mushrooms. We had 2 rooms for 2 nights, both were lovely, well furnished and clean. They were both on ground floor and despite people coming... More

I'm speechless!! This is a lovely typical seaside B&B, spotlessly clean, lovely sized rooms and a great breakfast to... More
