We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome and shown how everything works. Little touches like a bottle of mineral water and fluffy towels make you feel genuinely looked after. The breakfast was amazing and was the icing on the cake! Best nights sleep in ages, Thanks so much!

A welcoming ambience and one of the best breakfasts ever ( well 2 actually!) Susie and Tony provide a fount of local knowledge and run a very comfortable Guest House with a superb view of sunrise over the pier and harbour activities from the front rooms.

Susie and Tony were welcoming and friendly. Our room was decorated in French style very pleasantly. Best thing about this charming place was the breakfast, everything was very good, I don't think any thing we had was merely OK. Best poached eggs I think I've tasted and very fresh fruit salad. Breakfast was served for all guests at one large... More

Having contacted the local Tourist Information Office we were given the number of The Sandcastle. I'm so glad we were. It's a welcoming well maintained and homely place to stay. We arrived late due to delays and were warmly welcomed. We were asked what time we would like to have breakfast and what we would like. We had room 1,... More

Another lovely stay. Had rooms 1,2 & 4 for the family. All rooms extemely clean and comfortable. Ensuite facilities all very good. Spent a lovely hour soaking in the bath in ensuite room 4. Alan, the host this weekend, was very welcoming. Breakfast this morning was lovely and just the job after a good family night out. Can't praise highly... More

Stayed here on a business trip, only here for one night but the room was spotless, the bed comfy, the owner friendly, and the food brilliant. There was free parking out the front and a good sea view. Also the owners promptly posted me back some clothes I didn't realise I left behind - thanks so much!
