Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights for a break away and fell in love with this place. We stayed in the first room downstairs (room 1) and it was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was very nice, you can order the night before by text message and have it brought to your room - I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for a night in Room 2, on the ground floor. The room was quite small for the price (£100 for a Saturday night in June), but for just one night it was fine. We had a very warm welcome upon arrival, and our breakfast orders for the next day were taken then. We both ordered... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights over the weekend. Our experience was really positive from start to finish - the attentiveness of the staff really completes this B&B if you look out for the personal touch and great customer service. Our room was number 8 which is on the top floor as a small double room. Despite... More

It was very clean and tidy,staff were great and nothing was too much trouble,breakfast was delicious . We absolutely loved this motel and can't wait to go back and stay. We had a small double room which was small but it was fine for a 2 night stay. Would recommend a larger room if you was staying for longer.

I stayed here on a friends recommendation and i have to say i was not disappointed! The staff were so friendly from the word go and were really helpful. The accommodation is really quirky - penguin biscuits and branded rock sweeties in the room add a lovely touch! Boiled eggs are served with a smiley face and the cooked breakfast... More

My partner and I stayed at motel schmotel last night in room 10 (the room with the bath tub). We received a very warm welcome on arrival, our room was very clean and beautifully decorated. Lovely hospitality try complete with penguin biscuits and pieces of rock. Really comfortable bed and had everything we needed. The toilet is just outside this... More

The location of this cute B&B Is brilliant - literally 5 mins to the seafront & the owners have done a lovely job in getting the seaside vibe right here. The welcome was very warm too. The rooms are basic but clean - ok if you're not planning in spending much time there. Wifi great. Bathroom tiny so advised that... More

Just back from a trip with my sister. This little hotel is quirky and very charming, staff are very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast nice, and the place is spotless. I like the fact that it is a little independently run place and the owners obviously put a great deal of love and effort into their business. Might not suit everybody... More

Stayed here for a couple of days and although we were advised it was a small double room it suited us fine. The room was very small but cosy and had everything we needed from a shower and en suite to tea and coffee making facilities. The wifi worked fine even though we were on the top floor and the...
