I have reviewed this guest house as very good on two previous occasions, however, I was really disappointed on this visit. We were given a sea view room on the first floor which was cold, miserable and dinghy! The room felt as though it had not been used for some time hence the very cold feel to the bedding. We... More

This is a historic building, having been the home of the artist John Atkinson Grimshaw, & situated on the headland, just under the castle. The bedrooms are comfortable, although the decor is a bit dated. The dining room is very appealing, with its lantern roof, & old wooden fireplace, & prints of Atkinson Grimshaw's paintings. The lounge is comfy, with... More
