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

I joined my family for a two night stay at the stunning Belle Tout lighthouse to celebrate a significant birthday. We managed to book 3 out of the 6 rooms for a Sunday and Monday night stay. On arrival we were met on the steps by the manager, Ian, who immediately made us feel at home and helped us with... 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. I am so glad that you both enjoyed your time with us and that Shirley helped you negotiate the lantern room stairs with your drinks, they can be quite tricky if you are not used to them. I shall pass on your remarks about the cleanliness to Louise our housekeeper. I hope... More

My boyfriend booked this as a surprise and it was absolutely stunning. He organised with the staff to have champagne in the room for arrival and explained that he wanted to propose. They advised him on the quietest times in the lantern room and I believe they were very helpful. When we got there we were greeted at the door... More

We spent just one night at the lighthouse for our anniversary but wish we had been able to stay longer! The lighthouse is amazing and in a perfect location. The lantern room at the top of the lighthouse is gorgeous and the views are absolutely stunning - exactly like the pictures on their website. Shirley was lovely and always around... More

Standing alone and windswept on the top of the cliffs, Belle Tout really is a location like no other. The walks over to Beachy head and the seven sisters were breathtaking. The lighthouse itself was a wonderful place to stay. Our room, 'beach hut' was beautifully decorated and sparkling clean, and had everything we could have wanted: warm fluffy towels,... More

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We were made to feel extremely welcome in this beautiful B&B and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Small touches from the staff (such as a guided tour /history of the building, an anniversary card and a complimentary drink in the 360 degree viewing room) helped make our stay extra special. We stayed... More

We first visited this amazing place in November last year and booked for this visit before we had even left last time. I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts over the years, some of them have been quite unusual ( windmills, a tree house, an old Pullman railway carriage ) but I had never experienced ANYTHING as perfect as...
