What else can I add - everyone has said how nice the rooms are. Probably the best hotel or guest house room I have stayed in. The breakfast was good. There was a wifi repeater in the room which meant hat the room was illuminated with green flashing lights all night so had to down-power it when trying to get... More

We stayed here to attend a wedding at The Tunnels Beaches, we could not have picked a more perfect place for a special weekend away together. The rooms are lovely with special touches like bathrobes, flannels and the most luxurious soft bed sheets I have ever slept in, these special thoughtful touches really make your stay. The owner is another... More

The owners, Anne-Marie and Barry, are dedicated to high-quality service. A very committed and friendly couple who deserve to recoup (and more!) all the money they must have recenty invested on refurbishing this lovely hotel. I went with my disabled 92-year old mother and her room was the best she had ever been in for her requirements. I should also... More

My husband, myself and our adult daughter stayed here all last week. Anne-Marie and Barry were welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived. Our rooms were immaculately clean and the beds super comfortable. We had a wheelchair accessible room which was spacious and the en-suite bathroom met our needs admirably. It was obvious much thought had gone into the... More

Booked online at short notice. Arrived late in the dark. A lovely welcome to a spotlessly clean well decorated room. Breakfast was excellent (just a bigger pot of coffee needed). Booked dinner was good.
