On arriving, the first thing we noticed was the drive up to the hotel. That should have been a warning to us to turn around and leave but we continued until we reached the hotel. We were welcomed by two very friendly people but when we entered the reception room the smell of the room was very strong and all... More

This inn is simple, unfussy, and just the sort if place for the hiker who wants to walk all day and get a good night's sleep. The breakfast was great. Owner was super friendly and helpful. Great location for Coast Path hikers. Somewhat far from the harbor where the best restaurants are, but fine if you are a hiker and... More

Thank you Chris and John for another lovely stay at your hotel. I have been 5 times and love it there. You do need a car or be able to walk a bit. It's right out of the way so very quiet. 5 mins walk from either the high street or the sea front. Lots of lovely resturants and pubs... More

Okay so the room was ok! Beds are really comfy but well in need of a new shower! I felt like not having a shower because it is that bad you cannot get the right temperature and then it just comes out like a trickle the owners are pleasant and breakfast is fine... Apart from the fact you get waken... More

The location next to the coastal path was great with stunning views . Agree with previous review - long trip down to town, about 15 minutes and hilly, but ok. Need to be fit to stay here! The owners were helpful , and the accommodation very clean. But in need of a good overhaul. Wasnt looking for the Ritz, but... More

The previous review is too harsh. We spent a couple of nights there in a family room at the rear. The decor is a bit tired and the place looks to be in the middle of a make-over by the owners, but our room was very comfortable and well-equipped and the welcome, food and service were excellent. It is deally... More

The owners are remarkably friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the service was excellent. The bed was comfortable. This is probably why i did not complain at all about some features which were considerably sub par even for this price. To be honest, I almost turned around and left. Water pressure was close to nil and so showering was... More
