Not the nicest part of town, but this b&b is just great. Contact with Carol before we arrived was polite and efficient. She provided all the information we could ask for. We had the use of a private car park- another plus-. Our room,(no.4), is on the first floor and has a big bay window. It is well furnished, has... More

Thank you for your positive comments regarding your stay. We have had a very good response to the breakfast arrangements here. We feel we offer a different strand to some establishments and choice is all about selecting the product for you. Our close proximity to town outweighs the residential streets, if being near to local amenities and the waterfront is... More

Before I start, I hope that I do the place justice in the review, truth be told I can't put into word just how fantastic the Grove Guest House is.
