Found this lovely B&B on the net. Was staying just one night and found our hosts to be engaging and hospitable. Comfortable bed and a great breakfast. Worth taking a walk in parkland by the estuary, close by, before breakfast, to give yourself a good appetite. Many thanks. JB.

I chose Island House as a B&B for my future son in laws close family who had travelled from Australia for the wedding. I went down to visit Gordon & Viv and was shown around "Island House".

A warm welcome and comfortable stay. Ideal place for exploring south Wales. Lovely cooked breakfast. There is an interesting history of the house and the people associated with the past. Wonderful walk in the nearby park with views of the estuary and wildlife.

Love visiting this quaint B&B when we're visiting Wales. Rooms clean and tidy, lovely to have the use of the pool and jacuzzi too! Kids loved this especially. Viv and Gordon are always welcoming on our return visits. Highly recommended for couples and families alike.

We arrived at 7pm & had a lovely greeting. We were blown away by the standard of our family room, 2 double beds & a single, beautifully decorated and very comfortable beds. It is a gorgeous historic house but had everything we needed. It is very close to a fabulous pub (The Rev James Pub) and we had a lovely... More

My partner and I very much enjoyed out stay at island house. The house itself is lovely, very old with lots of original features. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable, I liked reading the booklets about the history of the house. Also a bible in the bedside table which is a traditional touch you don't see in... More

We were booked into Island House for work, and new nothing about the history. It is a traditional British B&B is all respects, with welcoming hosts and good hospitality. The main plus points were a good breakfast, a very comfortable bed, good location and the feeling that you could be left alone, or immerse yourself in the history of the... More
