Lovely welcoming owners and staff, really good to be able to have a swim before breakfast (though my son was more enthusiastic about the idea than me). We were able to do same again after a walk. The carnivores and vegetarians in our family all enjoyed their breakfasts and were set up for the day. Rooms were spotlessly clean, with... More

Barry and Kate were very accommodating, and it was no problem for us to change the days of our visit at short notice. Breakfast was delicious, varied and always very quick to be prepared. Barry...

We had a three night stay here in January 2014. I would choose to stay here again. We were greeted with homemade cake. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Breakfasts were delicious. Located within a few minutes walk of resturants and pubs.

I also needed one with a car park as I have difficulty walking. Found the Southview which when I phoned them was very helpful. when I booked the... More

We stayed here for two nights in January 2014 and were impressed with both the room and the breakfasts. The owners were welcoming and helpful and the bed incredibly comfortable. We would highly recommend a stay here.

We are very appreciative of the valuable service TripAdvisor provides both for the client and also for the useful feedback which helps us improve our service. However, it can at times pose a dilemma to the provider when a guest abuses the facilities on offer. The dilemma is whether to take the customer to task and risk a bad review.... More
