We have just got back having spent 3 nights at the Cavendish. Couldn't have been made more welcome by Joanne and Rob. Superb breakfasts and lovely room. Great location being a 10 - 15 walk to the town centre. No problem with parking right outside. Will def stay again. Thanks

Cannot fault this B&B superbly clean, rooms were spotless, nice little touches like moisturiser etc in the rooms, an all round fabulous building. Had a brilliant nights sleep, the bed was so so comfy and woke up to a fantastic cooked breakfast in the morning! Couldn't fault this B&B one bit. Just lovely. Very, very pleased we stayed here.

We chose the Cavendish because of its excellent reviews ....and it certainly lived up to them. It’s in a good quiet position on the cliffs at the south of the resort, but is easy to get from there to the promenade/beach, the centre and the railway station. The owners are really friendly and can’t do enough to ensure you enjoy... More

Me and my partner recently spent 2 nights here after reading the many excellent reviews and we were not disappointed... Joanne and Rob were very friendly, informative and helpful hosts, who recommended places for us to visit and even saved us money on our trip to the Sea Life Centre! The room was lovely and exceptionally clean! The facilities were... More

Went here because of previous good reviews. The owners were very friendly and there were lots of little touches, which made it even more enjoyable (like chocolates on the pillows, nice hand lotions and good quality soaps etc). If I was doing a "Four in a Bed" type review: How were your hosts - 10, (Very welcoming and friendly -... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that our breakfast was not to your liking, this is very puzzling as we receive a lot of compliments on our breakfast. As you have not been specific about what was wrong with your breakfast and you appeared to have not eaten any of it, the only thing that we can think... More

A very enjoyable stay made all the better by the outstanding hospitality shown by the hosts. The Cavendish is an instantly recognisable guest-house style hotel situated in a large Victorian town house just a few minutes walk from South Cliff gardens and the Clock Cafe. The proprietors have resisted turning the 125 year old building into a bland magnolia-walled box... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October. I can't rate this high enough, the room was clean and spacious with lots of really nice touches i.e. lovely toiletries making it feel really homely. The breakfast is probably the best I've ever experienced, it's all freshly prepared, there is plenty of it and all very good quality. There is a fridge... More

I stayed for 2 nights in june. Superb service, friendly and attentive without being too much. Toiletries and hospitality items in room of good quality, and lovely comfortable room. Excellent range of breakfast items for a small b&b, and beautifully cooked vegetarian breakfast. Had evening meal one night and this was also excellent. Parking permit invaluable. About 10 minute walk... More
