Very clean, comfortable beds and good breakfast, and parking available, although it was a bit tight. Shower was extremely weak, but only stayed one night so happy to live with it! 5 minute walk to the beach so an excellent location. The one thing that I felt really let it down, and why I have only rated it as a... More

A very clean guest house, well located for amenities. Not far from the beach. Nice breakfast, good value for money. This is a very good guest house. I enjoyed my two nights stay. The staff were friendly and made me welcome.

Spent one night at Amberlea recently. Its a very good B&B. Parking at rear, and Martin let us leave the car there all day on arrival in the morning and checked us in to save bothering on our return in the evening. The room was a good size with a double and a single(family room, I guess) Nice and clean... More

Spent a couple of days here as part of a tour along the south coast. Couldn't be faulted, Martin was a very welcoming host. The room was everything you would expext, very clean and comfortable with everything provided. The en suite was a bit on the tight side but not a problem. Only a few minutes walk into town &... More

Stayed here one night whilst visiting my partners relatives. Lovely warm welcome. The room although a little small was just what we needed. Fridge , tv, and tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom was fine. Must say the bed was comfy and had a good nights sleep. At breakfast there was a choice of cereals, fruit and yogurt . We had a... More

I can only speak for room No1. Very clean, Nice shower, Toilet area restricted right against door. Toilet did not flush properly which was reported but nothing changed. Parking very restricted too many spaces in too small area. Breakfast good.

We stayed for two nights in a double room on the ground floor in June 2013. The guest house is in Victoria Avenue and I would say about 500 yds from the beach. A Roman Catholic church is also to be found across the road as is a huge Council car park which, on Tuesdays, holds a modestly sized market.... More

We stayed for one night and I loved it here. Very friendly atmosphere, clean and comfortable rooms. Decent breakfast included in a price. Very helpful staff. We stayed for a wedding and needed to check in before the time specified on their website. There was no problem with that. I would definitely recommend that place.
