100 yards from the sea. One block from High street. Excellent breakfasts. Richard was a very helpful host and provided ideas for a full two day tour. Clean and well kept. We had a small room with balcony at the front. The bathroom was tiny with a bath and hand held shower wand. The toilet stopped working intermittently. The double... More

Late check in was a problem which was not mentioned in the information provided, no hot water in the morning for a shower. Room was a sauna so had to open windows in which a cat constantly entered to wake us up and highly allergic. Later tried to contact the owners to explain what had happened and complain about the...

07/09 to 14/09/2014 The Gables B&B is located a short walk from the town centre and the sea front, and is in a quiet part of town. Richard and Linda have made their guest house really homely and serve a wide selection of options for breakfast, and of superb quality. We had a small standard room which had a balcony... More

First time staying at The Gables and will definitely come back again. The house is lovely, full of character and the room (no 5) was very comfortable with lots of nice touches (e.g. scones and sweets!). Peaceful location. Breakfast was great, especially before a day walking the coast path. The cat and the owners are very welcoming and friendly. Easy... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights when golfing locally. The room was small - not room for much more than a queen bed & the shower room was tiny. Limited storage space as well. However, the bed was comfortable & the place quiet. The proprietor was very helpful e.g. arranging for an early breakfast when I was playing golf... More

We stayed at this B&B for 2 nights in August. When we arrived we paid upfront as you are only able to pay with credit card and cheque and didn't want to carry the money round with us. We were showed to our room and a few minutes later the owner came up to our room and said we hadn't... More

I feel very upset by this review. Ok, yes my husband misread the booking but how this is unreasonable to check is rude? I have no idea? mistakes are made via booking agents and human error, but we are always made out to be in the wrong! We work flipping hard and I do not see it as unreasonable to... More
