Quaint Inn that has turn of the century warmth and charm. Great location that's a short 10 min walk into the city center with it's numerous restaurants and pubs. Definitely order the breakfast at the Inn, top notch! Areas nearby have a plethora of outdoors activities that the Inn owners were very gracious in offering history and information about. 2... More

Extremely friendly welcome, very comfortable rooms,delicious breakfast, great location. 100% would stay again. Only problem was poor wifi, but that's probably a good thing. A stones throw from the town centr.

The Old Cable is a perfectly adequate place to stay. Basic but clean and comfortable enough, if a little tired in places. There was a friendly welcome on arrival and unlike some other reviews, the room did have tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. Although the Old Cable seems to be described everywhere as a B&B (even on... More

Warm welcome, grand breakfast, room was small but it catered fine for the one night we were staying. Views not the best from the place, but a short walk down the hill to the main street, shops, pubs and beach.

There was some confusion when we arrived about our room/reservation, but once we got that straightened out, everything else was fantastic. There were four of us and we stayed in what seemed to be a new addition to the house. Our room was very nice with comfortable beds, a large bathroom and very clean. In the morning we had a... More

So.. we booked this B&B in April for our September trip. On arrival, the ?manager eventually arrived. We introduced ourselves.. Oh, David. I'll be right back... 15 minutes later. When casually asked "how many rooms do you have" the answer.. "enuf." And, oh, by the way, the dining room is closed for dinner; and breakfast is not included (it's a... More

We stayed at the cable-house during mid September and had a wonderful visit. The owner met and allowed us to check in despite the incredibly late hour that we arrived. He was also friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. I found the room to be small and comfortable and the rest of the house to be neat and tidy.... More
