I booked the Grove, having read all the good reviews. They were all accurate. The front door is keypad operated which Carol supplied before we arrived. We were straight into the room which had been recently decorated and was spotlessly clean. There was a large corner shower in the bathroom and soft white towels. Beautifully scented shower gel and shampoo... More

I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We do like to think that guests leave us having had a comfortable stay, with all the requirements they need. I know many people check out but would like to visit the town centre or waterfront afterwards; I try to accommodate cars left for an extra duration, space willing! Perhaps... More

Very high standard of accommodation, run by a friendly and helpful couple. Situated a very short walk from the town centre with a great selection of in-room continental breakfast goodies! Recommended.

I chose this accommodation as it had good reviews, and it lived up to them. The room I had was large with a proper table for working and the bathroom was lovely, especially the shower which was strong. The room had a microwave so I could prepare myself a dinner. The breakfast selection was superb and it was already there... More

We are pleased to live up to the reviews you had read (that lead to you booking with us). Room 3 is our largest room and great for spreading out and working, as many people do during the week. The breakfast arrangements are different to most guest houses and although some people specify a dietary requirement, most do not. Therefore... More

You had everything you needed in the room as breakfast was ready in the fridge so its handy if you don't mind DIY breakfasts and have an early start. Owners were very helpful. It was a lovely room and provate parking was very handy indeed.

Despite only meeting our hosts briefly in the corridor, we were made to feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. The room had everything we needed and was perfect for our needs. The breakfast was a lovely personal touch, as were the fantastic 'directions' cards for local amenities. These things really set this guest house apart. Thank you for a fantastic stay... More
