Great location right on the front. Welcoming hosts always ready to help you. We have stayed in two of the apartments. Eden is cosy with lovely views over the garden. It is quiet, plenty of room and lovely comfortable beds. Batteries felt recharged when we had stayed for our week. Oriel apartment is on the top floor so a couple... More

We had a very comfortable night at Gabriel House followed by a lovely breakfast. The room had a marvellous view of the sea - which was dramatic given the wild February weather. Tricia was very friendly and helpful.

We had a great stay at the Gabriel House. Room was very comfortable, location is excellent, breakfast was tasty and ample and the host were very friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. Also free parking right outside the guest house. We will be back :-)

Wow, what a great place. Right on the promenade with ample parking, and a great view of the sea! We picked a very cold evening to stay and the room was a little cold, although the host John was ready with an additional heater in hand so was soon remedied! A great nights sleep was had by all in a... More

Lovely stay in the hotel- right on the seafront. Hosts very welcoming and the breakfast was the best we've ever had. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation, the only downside was the room was very chilly at night- but it was January- and there were storms each night x . Overall excellent service.

Stayed at this lovely guest house for 2 nights. Had a beautifully furnished, comfortable and spotlessly clean room with a sea view. There was a great choice for breakfast which was delicious, setting you up for the whole day. All in all a fantastic stay and we will be back in spring. Thank you for looking after us so well.

A well appointed b an b with quality furnishings in my room.bit cramped in the bathroom thiogh and not properly heated. Beautiful breakfast served on good quality China so appreciated those touches there. Make the opening to your carpark bigger! For one night the cabin room is perfectly OK.

My family stayed in the Oriel apartment with other members of the family in the Eden apartment and b&b rooms in Gabriel House. The accommodation was home from home with beautiful views from the Oriel apartment. Some family members had the pleasure of staying in the b&b rooms one of which included a luxurious 4 poster bed! Great location right... More

Gabriel House is aptly named, our overnight stay there being almost heavenly. Not the easiest place to find but once you do arrive at their front door you are in for an absolute treat. Tricia and John were exceptional hosts and breakfast was an incredible experience. You select your choice of cooked foods from an expansive list the night before... More
