This is a fabulous B&B, so clean and with friendly staff. We thoroughly recommend it. I booked 2 rooms, one for my husband and I and one for my sister and husband. We were facing the front and my sister's room was facing the back. The only thing was my brother-in-law is 79 and has had 2 previous heart attacks... More

Stayed here In may with my boyfriend and parents! What a lovely personal little hotel! So homely and you were treated as a friend to all staff! Views over the bay are amazing and is only a short taxi (no more than £5) to any beach front or activities. Could have easily walked it but my dad has bad legs!... More

Stayed for one night 2 July 2014. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was excellent. Great selection on the menu for breakfast. Opted for the Full Yorkshire Breakfast and could not manage it all. Would certainly stay there again.

I can honestly say this is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed in, the room (double bijou) was snug, but comfortable. The bed was absolutely luxurious, including feather pillows (soft and firm) and very contemporary, classy decor. There were also lovely little touches such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate and two little chocolates in the room with... More

We stayed in the adjoining apartments to the Helaina B&B in the ground floor 1 bed apartment. It was absolutely fantastic - modern, beautifully decorated, extremely well equipped. The lounge has a wonderful sea view with the dining table set in the bay window. The kitchen is fantastic, and the bathroom excellent too. Slept very well in s comfy bed.
