Not sure of the clientele that have visited this hotel before but they definitely have very different standards and expectations for an 'excellent' hotel. It was old, so old it seemed dirty, the decor was dated and cheap looking. We were told we had the best room in the B & B so I would hate to see what the... More

Rick and Jan were lovely and really made us feel at home. The weather was horrible but they made our stay wonderful and breakfast was excellent. I would strongly... More

Absolutely brilliant..! Right be the sea, fab location. Unfortunately when we went to Blackpool the weather let us down a bit, bit that didn't stop us having a great time. The Gynn pub just a stones throw away and in short walking distance of everything you could ever want to do :). Carol and Jeff the best B&B owners I... More

The welcome is second to none, Carol cooks a mean full... More

We stayed for two nights in October 2010, arriving fairly late on a friday night; no problem for our flexible hosts! Our room was thoroughly clean and tidy & Carol even brought us up a steaming pot of tea to welcome us in. In the morning we were greeted by a fantastic breakfast; oodles of tea, coffee, toast, muesli, orange... More
