Fantastic breakfast of Eggs Benedict cooked by Chris...will be visiting... More

Yet another visit to my favourite B&B ever! Rooms lovely, comfy beds, clean, lovely linens, nice touches with cakes to help yourself, fridge full of sparkling and still water, quality tea and coffee, fresh milk. The breakfasts are supreme! Better than many 5* hotels. Wonderful choice, lovely conservatory to sit in, nothing is too much trouble for Chris and John.... More

An amazing, warm and friendly arrival, great food, great room and everything keep simple, thank you also for the cakes! You can expect great service at this B&B without it being imposing. The breakfast was impeccable Chris and John just keep bringing you food and nothing is too much bother. What a great break!

There's many things you look for in a B&B. A great night's sleep; cleanliness; a great breakfast with quality ingredients and plenty of choice; a good location and friendly, genuine hosts. Bed & Breakfast by the Beach has all of these and more in spades. I've actually forgotten how many times we've stayed here, but the standards never drop and... More

Room 4 warm beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, fluffy towels and lots of little extras, flowers home made cakes wonderful. Breakfast was amazing all fresh and cooked to order Could not recommend... More

My wife and I are definite advocates of staying in and supporting non chain establishments like John & Chris's wonderful B&B. What you don't get at chain hotels is absolutely the opposite of what you experience at Breakfast by the Beach. You are not a digit on a receptionist computer but a valued guest experiencing great customer service , wonderfully... More

We booked a two night stay to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. From the warm welcome, to the beautiful, comfortable room, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Breakfast was amazing with a huge selection to choose from, and delicious home made cakes to help ourselves to. We loved the attention to detail in every room. John... More
