We booked a one night stay as we went to a gig at the wedgewood rooms, just up the road. On arrival the gentleman showed me where to park and helped us out with directions and things to do in the local area. He was very friendly and very helpful, he obviously cares about what he does and I don't... More

I booked this to stay at after the ferry trip from France, The owner sent a text the day before, saying 9pm latest turn up time , that was impossible as ferry gets in at 9.30, There was nothing on the site stating the time limitations when I booked. He then refused to return my money or honour the reservation.... More

I stayed here in march 2014 and cannot express my dissatisfaction. Not only were the staff disgustingly rude the room, well, where do I start. If you're looking for a room to film a porn movie - this is the place for you. Dirty sheets and an awful smell. Uninhabitable. Please, for your sake do not stay here. Thank you

The big failing of Trip Advisor is that they don’t check that their “reviewers” actually stay in the accommodation commented upon, which opens the door to malicious and untrustworthy remarks such as this, for whatever commercial reason. Had this reviewer actually slept the night, he might just have noticed that our top quality, crisp, white and freshly laundered bed linen... More

I stayed here for 1 night and from the outset it was brilliant. The owner greeted me and showed me to my room. The room was fully equipped with en suite and even an iron and ironing board. The bed was comfy and the water hot. Breakfast was outstanding

I booked a bed and breakfast as I thought better to give my money to a private organisation than a big company - the BB wasn't cheap £78 for bed and breakfast. The first thing to note about the Abbey Lodge - DO NOT THINK of checking in before 4pm and if you arrive after 9 you are seriously out... More

This is very much B and B standard. The rooms were clean but very tired and dated. ( I did notice a stained duvet cover.). The landlords were perfectly nice people. The breakfast was very nice and freshly cooked. Our "superior room" would be a normal hotel standard room. At £78.00 / night I would say over priced.

The place is clean and the owners pleasant, helpful and attentive. Good location near Albert St where there were shops restaurants and pubs, and close to the sea. All night partying students over the road kept me awake, which is a shame.....

The breakfasts were well cooked and the bedroom contained a large, comfortable bed. The "bathroom" (toilet, washbasin and shower) was the smallest I have seen. It looked like a converted wardrobe. Anyone suffering from claustrophobia beware! A first glance it looked dirty but this was due to the old, chipped tiles. In actual fact it was clean. We had to... More
