Positives: We were given room 1, which has the huge balcony on the second floor with a sliding glass door that overlooks the lake. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The bathroom was small, but updated and clean. Negatives: There was no hot water when we tried to shower on the first morning (at 6am). The water... More

I stayed in The Lighthouse b&b with my friends in January and we all really like the place! The breakfast was amazing, the room was nice and clean and the location is brilliant. I would definitely recommend this b&b to anyone!

An excellent place to stay at. They have good selections for breakfast, a quiet location and comfy beds. The cream on the top is that the owner was very nice and helpful. She made us a packed breakfast when we left at 1 am. Will definitely stay here again.

Great continental breakfast (fruits, muffins, cold meat, cheese, tomatoes, jams, cereals, scones, fresh rolls etc), comfy bed, working heater(!), free wifi. The only bad thing was that as we left our luggage after we checked out, we couldn't collect it any time - it is b&b but 24hrs reception would be nice.

Ignore the the bad reviews. We stayed here for three nights and it was lovely. The rooms were comfortable as were the beds and we slept very well. The whole place was clean and there was a copious breakfast. Francis, the friendly, chatty landlady, also allowed us to make packed lunches from the food provided at breakfast which, was great...

We stayed at the Lighthouse B&B for three nights and it was the worst three nights sleep of my life, the bed was small and very uncomfortable and the pillows were like planks of wood, the bedding was old and not very fresh. There was no hot water to have a shower we had to run it for half an... More

After reading reviews we were a bit worried about staying however it seems to be a very different story in 2013. We were greeted by the lady of the house who was very friendly. We were going to the races so we arrived very early and we were kindly given a room to change in. This room was to the... More

We stayed at the Lighthous B&B on Sat night and let me tell you, we were treated like royalty! A young man greeted us by opening two big doors positioned underneath the B&b allowing is to park out car in a double garage. From that moment on we felt like we belonged at this wonderful homely place. The young man... More
