Visited The Belle Tout this month as a birthday treat from my father inlaw for my wife's 40th birthday which was last month. On arrival we were greeted by the marvellous host Ian who showed us to our wonderful room where the wife was greeted with a birthday card... A lovely touch. The Belle tout is a must stay. The...

Just spent a lovely night and the Belle Tout Lighthouse. It is without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The location is out of this world, the hotel itself is immaculate, clean and beautifully decorated. The bed again is the comfiest we have stayed in. The friendliness of the staff just tops that off, especially Ian. A... More

I just realized I never left a review for this breathtaking lighthouse. How could that be... Belle tout was a highlight of my trip. I actually visited in March 2012. I stayed in the keepers loft, which was perfect for a solo traveler. Ian is a wonderful cook and very helpful! Staying in a lighthouse is a rare treat, take... More

A lovely three day stop for honey moon - champagne and chocolates at the top of the lighthouse was unforgettable. Great rooms - great view - great walks - lovely staff. A real treat - Andrew looked after us so well!

Just spent two nights at The lovely little Belle Tout lighthouse and would thoroughly recommend it. Amazing 360 degree views of the coastline and Southdowns, lovely clean, smart rooms, lovely breakfasts, helpful, knowledgeable manager and staff... Didn't want to leave. Will definitely stay there again. Thank you Belle Tout!!

Just come back from a brilliant 2 night stay in the Shiraz. I had planed this as a gift for my husbands 50th. I am not very interested in walking or the taking in of the clean sea air, but knew my husbands passion to stay in a lighthouse so thought this may be a good experience for him. How... More

Thanks to Ian and Shirley for making us feel so welcome, lovely friendly people. Where else can you wake up to a sun rise in front of lighthouse in a lighthouse with no noise other than the birds and animals outside! Each room has a theme. We stayed at Beach Hut and it was furnished with style to fit the... More

Not a B & B experience to be missed. We stayed in Beach Hut which was funny enough just like a beach hut. Beautifully decorated and clean as a whistle. The shower was good and the bed comfy. The dual aspect view from our room was amazing. Shirley welcomed us on arrival and the service was extremely good. (just a... More

Hi Nora54, Thank you for your kind review.
