At the time of my visit, the new owner was nearing the end of a major restoration and modernisation. I appeared to be the only guest, but the place is looking neat and tidy, carpeted and decorated to a good standard, but under the circumstances there was little 'feel' to the place. I had single use of a small double... More

Undergoing refurbishment, our room was "brand new" so obviously fresh and clean. The proprietor is courteous, helpful and available in a calm and friendly way [no gushing or overbearing here]. He apologised that a couple of tiny finishing touches still needed to be in place such as mirrors but it was all was in hand and being sorted. That's the... More

Had a great time at the Tamarind, our children haven't stayed in a guest house before and they thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a family room on the top floor which was newly renovated - everything brand new and very clean! Super large shower, lots of hot water, warm room and very comfortable beds (a king size bed and bunks).... More

Happy new year A refreshing change to the tired old B&Bs, Chris very friendly and helpful, lots of local knowledge. New Year Prosecco on arrival. Good clean room with all new fixtures and fittings. Quiet location yet less than five minutes walk from sea front. We will definitely return.
