We were accomadated helpfully for a last minute stay travelling with our little one and travel cot in tow. The B&B is in a perfect location, a couple mins walk from beach. It's nicely decorated throughout and spotlessly clean. Lovely bathroom toiletries too. Made use of the very comfortable visitors lounge also. High quality breakfast with something for everyone. We...

Very nice room and well equipped. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Everything was done as well as possible and staff were lovely. Would recommend. Breakfast serving time of 8.15 to 9.15 was a bit restrictive although the breakfast itself was super for choice and quality.

We recently stayed two nights at this lovely B & B. Our room was light, bright and well decorated. En-suite bathroom was sparkling with fluffy white towels. Comfortable residents lounge on the ground floor and a delicious breakfast with fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals, full english and toast on offer. Becky and her team were very friendly. Have already booked to... More

My cousin and I stayed Friday and Saturday nights . We loved it. We really appreciated the detailed attention to every aspect of your comfort, from the lovely bed linen and deliciously comfortable beds to the excellent breakfasts in the sunny dining room.

Very impressed with this B & B. Very clean, nicely decorated. We had a good size family room for 3 and the facilities in the room and bathroom was very good. It was quiet and very comfortable. We needed to leave before breakfast so the staff showed us where we could help ourselves to cereal and juice. Will definitely return.

Just had another lovely four days at The Castleton. Same high standard of service. The accommodation is clean, staff are friendly and breakfasts excellent. Nothing is too much trouble at The Castleton. The bed in our family room was on the small side. We have a king size at home so going down to a standard double did feel a... More

Look no further than The Castleton. A stylish, welcoming, and lovely B&B in a fantastic location just a short walk to the town and its sandy beaches. The standard is exceptionally high, extremely clean, modern and above all, very friendly. The bathroom was new with complimentary toiletries and bath towels that were very white and fluffy.
