I’m glad I didn’t read certain Trip Advisor reviews before booking here as it would have put me off what was a lovely place to stay. I stayed here with my partner after our other B&B reservation fell through due to a double booking and it was recommended to us by the owner of the other B&B. The guesthouse is... More

The owner was very pleasant and the house is very nicely decorated. We stayed one night in a family room which could sleep four. The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a good choice. It is a short walk to the start of the town centre a d has a good array of shopping.

Owner Mrs. Dunn upon arrival did not greet us rather showed us the room and left. There was no welcoming and nice spirit just a hard hearted person. When attempting to speak to her she mearly walks on by without talking back at all. Also, there is only 1 bathroom to use and if you use any other bathroom because... More

I stayed here sometime in October, during October break, it was a nice place, very homey, and the breakfast wasn't that bad. Though there's not much of a selection. The kids enjoyed playing on the lounge with the doll house. The owner was quite friendly and helpful. The beach is just a walking distance and so the town centre...very handy.... More

Stayed 3 nights on a breakaway to chill out. Location is very good. City centre easy reachable with lots of restaurants and shops as well as the beach all on your doorstep - easy walking distance. Good choice of breakfasts (Continental, cooked - if haggis and black pudding wanted it had to be given notice the evening before, vegetarian, porridge,... More

We stayed 3 nights last week at "The Dunn Thing" B&B - due to a problem with the cottage we were renting in the area at the time. Mrs. Dunn was very welcoming and so obliging when we arrived - nothing was too much trouble the whole time we were there. She was great with our children - and was... More

Nice B&B at a reasonable cost, clean & tidy but it lacked care for its guests. Didn't bother us too much but the fact that no-one was available for assistance and advice was unsatisfactory. Can't fault the young lady who was brought into cook and help clean as breakfast was lovely and she was very helpful and attentive.

Looked and sounded nice in brochure. . . .No "free pick up".No "welcome cup of tea on arrival".Rooms adequate (except that the milk was sour,sachet of hot chocolate musty). "TV lounge for guests" uninviting - seemed more like a store-room. Breakfast nice, varied choice. Unfortunately, the owner was rarely available to help with any needs eg., a couple with children...

Look guys your not going to get a Hilton at b n b prices. This place is clean and presentable and a 10 minute walk from the centre. I stay in about 10 different places around the UK every month and I would stay here again. Free wifi but low reception in room 3. Also the tv in this room... More
