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

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.

We stayed at this Guest House recently for a few days. The hosts were very friendly, sharing local knowledge. We had a sea view room, which if you have the chance to great, grab with both hands. The view from the room was stunning. Breakfast was also excellent and the lady assisting with these, should get a special mention. Overall,... More

Rather uneventful stay. Little on-site parking but we were lucky to get a free parking space in the adjacent road. Problems with the toilet cistern were addressed adequately by the son of the house - to whom, thanks. Really needs a plumber to thoroughly sort out. Location: a little far from the centre and ferry terminals if walking, but OK.

CarolAHarris, Owner at Alltavona Guest House, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. Alltavona is approximately 10 min walk into town and centrally located . The toilet cistern was not broken until you flushed it and was quickly rectified, why the need to comment on this as it makes out it was broken before you arrived. I am pleased that everything else acceptable and you enjoyed your stay.... More

Paul and carol were very professional and helpful hosts. They were very accommodating of our last minute change of plans. The room was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast room has a lovely view over the water and the food was delightful. It is a short walk into town with lots of great restaurants and shopping. A very pretty... More
