The only gripe (small one) is having to lug heavy suitcases up a couple of flights of stairs. Otherwise great hospitality from Mal and Fran, superb breakfast, especially the assorted fresh fruit each day. Very comfortable and clean room. Tiny shower but to be expected in most B&B's. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

excellent place to stay the hospitality is outstanding. We could not have asked for anymore. Room was 1st class, bed was superb. Plenty of choice for breakfast including fresh fruit and cooked breakfast as well as an assortment of teas. All thanks to Mal & Fran who made us very welcome. We will definitely be going back.

First time visit to this B&B based upon trip advisor ratings and was very impressed. Spacious clean room with a modern feel. Excellent breakfast, fresh fruit and very nice pancakes and traditional eggs and bacon, much better than these larger hotels. Close to nice local shops and sea front also. Owners picked up on your preferences quickly and made sure... More
