Thanks, we are glad you enjoyed the area AND breakfasts. As soon as we have more staff we will be opening longer hours - unless you would like the job of cook & waitress?! (We could pay you in breakfasts!) More

We had a great time staying at The Living Room. There wasn't enough they could do for us and accommodated our baby and related needs brilliantly. The breakfasts were amazing too! We would definitely stay again and look forward to the opportunity to return!

Lovely hotel with very clean and bright bedroom. Super comfy bed. Hearty tasty breakfasts. Within walking distance of beach, local shops and good eating places. Hosts very helpful. Close to main roads but very quiet location.

Fabulous place to stay, shabby chic with a twist. Staff are so attentive and really friendly, which makes you feel welcome and relaxed. Little homemade Brownies in a biscuit jar (instead of pre packed biscuits) give that extra special touch. Room was bright and comfortable, free Wi-Fi and lots of hot water. Breakfast was amazing and the choice that was... More

Have just left the living room after a great 3 day stay and would highly recommend it. Our friends and I have had a nice time relaxing with a good breakfast, clean simple rooms and friendly staff.

Great warm welcome, we were greeted like long lost friends. Shown to a Spotlessly clean room, nicely decorated en suite with powerful shower. Good firm mattress on an antique bed.
