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

They think of all the little things too, they... More

Another year at Southern Breeze and the standard has, if anything, increased. It is very difficult to improve on what Fran and Mal have spent the last few years achieving but by the end of our stay we still felt that this year was even better than the last one. The dietary requirements and options available are second to none,... More
