Warm welcome, very kind and knowledgeable owners, a touch of decadent decor which adds to the atmosphere, a spotlessly clean bedroom and a generous sized bed, a very good breakfast. A place where to go back to!

Our family stayed in 3 rooms for two nights in October. Carol and her husband could not have been more welcoming or accommodating - we arrived earlier than anticipated and were helped with our bags to our rooms. On seeing that my mother used a cane, she was offered to swap for a room on the ground floor which she... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and everything was great. You enjoyed your sea view and pleased you enjoyed our breakfast selection. We are approximately 10 min walk from town centre making it an easy walk into town but just out of the traffic and noise of the centre of the town. Look forward to you returning. Carol. More

Thanks Altavona Hosts for a great stay in room 7 at the top of the stairs. Comfortable room with great views. Easy walk to main restaurants about 12 minutes. Scrumptuous breakfast particularly all the fresh berries and fruits. Loved the eclectic decor in such a great Victorian terrace right on the harbour.
