Stayed there with my partner for 3 nights and had a lovely time, room was exceptionally clean and well decorated. The bed was soft and very comfortable, one of the best I've ever slept in at a hotel. En-suite was bright and everything was cleaned daily. Steve and Tony are brilliant hosts and the breakfast was superior!

This review could have been the complete opposite, unfortunately the lack of hospitality overwhelmed the result. Yes, our rooms, even at the very top, were very clean & comfortable, good location to seafront, breakfast good too. However, our stay was overshadowed by Steve's lack of hospitality. Surprising for a 'guest house'

I note your comments, and as we always reply to reviews, we have a few of our own to pass onto you. Its a shame that the markings are definitely "sour grapes", and a personal attack on a member of staff, rather than constructive criticism of any faults in the services and facilities in my establishment. As you note on... More

Stayed here with my husband and daughter two years ago in October. Cant fault the place, lovely hosts and great breakfast. We got totally soaked one day and walked in dripping wet. They dried out our clothes for us. The room we were in was perfect and our daughter loved her area within the room.
