Stayed for 2 nights here to attend a wedding at The Tunnels. Warm welcome, beautiful room with top quality bedding, tea/coffee/biscuits and a good choice of breakfast options. Free parking on street outside b & b. Will recommend this to friends and family.

Booked the twin room for a week for me and mum. Our aunt had a kingsize room to herself. It was bigger than her bungalow (nearly). Our room was at the front, was abit noisy at times but mainly due to the seagulls. Our room was very spacious. We thought the body lotion and body wash were a nice thought.... More

Hi Naomi. Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed your breakfast and apols if you felt you received a telling off. Parking on The Woodlands driveway can be a little challenging. We recommend that guests reverse onto the driveway. Unfortunately there is not a lot that we can do to improve this due to the elevated position that... More

Stayed here easter weekend and found it very comfortable, very clean and with a great breakfast. Our room was newly decorated and was bright and airy with balcony over looking the lovely garden. The owners were helpful and attentive. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B.
