The hosts were wonderful; Karen and Steve are a delightful couple. The rooms were larger than expected for a B & B style building, and beautifully decorated in a modern and fresh style. A very clean and fresh experience throughout. The breakfasts were superbly cooked, delightfully served and presented, and were absolutely delicious - with such a good selection of... More

Karen and Steve made us feel at home, the room was very comfortable for a standard room, especially the bed. The house had a very friendly atmosphere and was very comfortable throughout. Karen and Steve made us the best breakfast we have had, lovely. The house is situated near the train station, but still in a nice quiet location. There... More

This establishment calls itself a Guest House or a B&B - it is not - it is a lovely hotel which happens to provide breakfast. The owners are very lovely people and are so hospitable. The location is great - convenient for walking down to the front, and in to the old town where there are very good restaurants. The... More

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and Steve and Karen proved to be exceptionally friendly and considerate hosts. The room was very well decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great and vegetarians need have no worries about their needs being met. We will definitely be returning!

After leaving a hotel on the island due to it being inhabitable we were lucky enough to get a last minute stay here. I am so glad. The hosts are so welcoming and friendly and a joy to chat to. The rooms are spotlessly clean and tidy and the hotel has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The sea front is a... More

The positive reviews we read about this place before staying here were excellent. Now I can say that they were all true. The owners were extremely nice, the breakfast was super and the huge bathroom towels were a nice touch.
