Where do I start. David & Tania were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. Room although small was very clean and tidy. Breakfast, superb. All cooked by David himself. Location, excellent. 100 yds from beach and round the corner from whalebones & Captain Cook's statue. Parking, no problems. I was straight outside the door. Very peaceful, no... More

Sadly I could not find fault with this gorgeous B&B - Tania & David are the most congenial of hosts. The room was extremely comfy & quiet and the amenities very clean with loads of hot water. Breakfast was always enjoyable with Tania's witty banter over a hearty cooked breakfast. I had a single room which although was not en-suite... More

Tania was very helpful with my last minute booking. Typical well run British B&B with a great breakfast. Not sure about the review below "A bit stuck in time.." as I found the place to be quite modern and refreshing compared to other B&Bs in England and particularly liked the little life inspiring quotes throughout the place. Nice touch putting... More

Just returned from an overnight stay. Warm, friendly welcome. Spotlessly clean, well equipped rooms. And a tasty breakfast. What more could you ask from a B&B?! Would definitely return. Neil and Caroline.

We stayed for one night, last minute break, and we picked it because of the good reviews. Unfortunately it just wasn't for us. The hosts were friendly and welcoming, and helpful with the parking permit. Our room was en suite, large, a bit old fashioned with a sink basin in a corner. We only had one tea mug in the... More

From our first telephone contact to us departing after our 2 night stay at The Waverley was excellent. Even though we arrived very early (10 am!!) on our first night David was able to check us in, helped with our cases, show us our room (5) and sort out our parking permit all of which he did with a smile....

Went for a second time because on first occasion Tania and David were so welcoming and were not disappointed Again we were welcomed like old friends It is definitely home from home, very clean, made to feel very comfortable and excellent breakfast. Tania and David go out of their way to get to know you and help in any way... More

Had an enjoyable weekend in October at the Waverley. There are so many B&B's of this type in the Town it can be tricky to choose something suitable. The Waverley is located about 15 minutes walk from the center of the Town in a quiet residential area. It is a typical converted building with thin walls quite cramped and some... More
