We had two nights with Gordon and Viv and couldn't have been more comfortable. We sat in the hot tub watching shooting stars, followed by a good night's sleep in really comfortable beds. A great breakfast followed in the morning. Highly recommended.

As with most of the reviews on here, we found Island House to be welcoming and comfortable for a one night B&B. Forget the negative review about the religious aspects: they are very low key but add a pleasant feeling of history to the house. The location is undersold - two minutes walk over grass to the side of the... More

Visited for two nights in August and it has been one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. Gordon and his wife were lovely hosts and the breakfast was absolutely lush. The bedrooms are done to a high standard and a very homely. Would definitely recommend!

we arrived at 11:30 in the morning and Gordon very kindly allowed us to put our bags in our room and we were off! We had the family room sleeping three children and two adults, the room was big enough to accommodate us all. The facilities were good, and Gordon & Viv couldn't do enough for our family, (except the... More

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". I left with the confidence that they were going to be well looked after with true Welsh hospitality and I was not wrong.... More

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
