We arrived, were greeted at the door. Given a choice of two rooms, both of which were lovely. In fact stunning, furnished to suit the house, which is oldie world. The land lady is a lovely person so lovely to speak to, and you can tell the lady takes a pride in what she does, and the family have achieved... More

Given that some of those reviewers, so called, can't even spell I'm very much surprised at some of the thoughts they are suggesting to other peoples minds. If they left this Guest House without having the sheer guts to speak up about "so called" problems merely confirms the better reviews to me!! My family will be staying for sure.

Margaret made sure that everything was in place for our stay, and was more than accommodating when we thought we might arrive into town early. Our room was spacious, clean, and quiet, and opened up into a beautiful walled garden. She had several suggestions for dinner and drinks, all of which were perfect, and the English breakfast she made us... More

Very comfortable bed and excellent breakfast served in the room. Access through the garden via the back door, so no need to disturb the owner. Garage parking was available although we were happy to park in the street outside.

My wife and I stayed here on 23rd September. We turned up last minute and the only room available was the family room. Our double bed was very comfortable and sleep quality was excellent. The shower was disappointing, warm and slow running at best. We ordered breakfast, which was served in our room, for 8.30am and it arrived at 8.20... More

A very nice building with nice rooms of a decent size (except for the small but functional bathrooms), an effervescent and very helpful owner, a good breakfast and a good price. There seemed to be street parking around but make use of the garages if you can - booking it won't guarantee anything but they moved things around to accommodate... More

We stayed with Margaret at the No 1 Guest House last week on our way back from Europe - as we have done with our children for the last 12 years. The house is a couple of minutes drive from the ferry port, and 5 min. walk from the town centre. The rooms are clean, smart and comfortable, and have... More
