Called to check availability for the forthcoming weekend due to the great Tripadvisor reviews. Spoke to Mrs Chamberlain who advised that unfortunately she has since retired and closed the B&B, what a shame, such a sweet lady.

We stayed at Arden House for two nights with our six month old daughter. We were a little nervous as this was the first time we had stayed in a hotel/B&B with her. However, Mrs Chamberlain made us feel very welcome. The family room had plenty of space for a cot, and would have been good for families with older... More

The rooms are very nice and clean. Breakfast is lovely and the owners are very friendly. Location is perfect as well, because you can walk to the seafront in 5 minutes and there is a busstation in walking distance. Everything was just perfect!

On arriving in the UK from Australia, we had the very pleasant experience of staying twice at Arden Guest House with Mr & Mrs Chamberlain, during September 2011. Mrs Chamberlain was very gracious to two very tired people when we arrived. Our rooms on both visits were bright and cheerful and very clean and comfortable and we really appreciated the... More
