I arrived at the cara on the 23rd of December 2015. I arrived with my two staffordshire bull terriors who were greated so well as was i. The owner carol is so friendly and helpful it puts you at ease straight away. I genuinely don't have a bad comment about my stay at the cara. It's in the perfect location... More

Had a scan over the reviews and was surprised to see people complaining about Carol. I've never met a nicer lady. Happy with my stay and I'll be here for a few months on business. Great views of the sea and sunset. Good location. No problems with the wifi either. No reasons for any complaints.

The cara is a great value b&b. Brilliant location, friendly staff and a good breakfast, without breaking the bank. What more do you need? There are a few negative reviews on here but I've never experienced any of these problems and I stay here regularly. The rooms are large and we'll equipped and the location is great, right on the...

Looks nice from the outside. Apart from the stained sheets the rooms were pretty clean but basic. An then we met carol! Extremely rude and abrupt on telling us about the facility's in the hotel, and seemed to shout at us for asking any questions on parking etc. We were asked what time we wanted breakfast in the morning, to...

I really liked this guest house. The location, just round the corner fro the Playhouse and fish and chip shops is great. It looks across a The Links, with views of the beautiful Spanish City dome one way, St Mary's Island And Lighthouse the other. All the staff were friendly and helpful. My room was basic, but the wifi was... More

I stayed in this guesthouse for two weeks and I must say that it was a great experience! With such competent and nice staff, as well as nice cozy rooms and just the most amazing view, it's really a fantastic place. Carol just takes care of everyone!

Carol seemed like a nice enough lady, i didn't find her exactly helpful but she was friendly, the main issue i had with this inn was the fact that during the whole stay there was no wifi at all... now of course in hotels it is ALWAYS necessary. However in B&B's with being normally family owned these are not always... More
