My dad and I stayed here after finishing our coast to coast walk. It's location right near the beach was excellent. If you want to eat dinner there, make sure to have reservations in advance. We didn't have reservations, but we were given help finding somewhere else to eat dinner. The rooms were cosy and clean. The breakfast was great... More

The Boathouse was in a great location for the end of the C2C walk. We only had to walk about 20 paces from the finish to get there. Our room was lovely and we were shown straight to our room. It was a great room overlooking the front. We had a fab breakfast with locally sourced food, but it was... More

Booked in here to overnight after Day 13 of my Coast to Coast Walk. Check-in was easy, all staff were friendly/helpful with pride of place for the entire trek going to the waitress who served me at dinner/breakfast, top-notch service and friendliness! The food at dinner in the Bistro was superb [I had a starter, seafood linguine main and dessert... More

Stayed here with a group of friends recently after finishing the coast to coast. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome by Lisa who showed us to our rooms. The rooms were lovely, very clean and full of character. The views were to die for. We booked to eat in the Bistro when we reserved the rooms which... More

My wife and I stayed overnight here at the end of our Coast To Coast walk. What a mistake that turned out to be. On arrival we expected that as residents we would be able to book a table in the bistro below the accommodation. However, the owner informed us that this was not possible as all the tables were...

Well Mr Whalley I was expecting this but hoped you would be as good as your word. I obviously need to toughen up on rude and aggressive "Guests". You arrived having finished The Coast to Coast on a Wednesday evening very tired. You came into Smugglers bistro to check in and before I had even got your keys out you... More

The Boathouse rooms are about as close to the end of the C2C as it gets. Right across the road from the Wainwright where you'll sign the log. This is a bit of a do it yourself place if you arrive when Smuggler's restaurant is closed. You get your keys from a lock box and let yourself in. The room... More

Thank you Heather for such a cheerful happy honest review. We too are sorry Smugglers was closed on the evening you finished your C2C. We hope you will return at a later date and dine with us. More

Wouldnt go again. Very slow service, rude staff, overpriced small portions. Toilet outside in the pouring rain! what a joke. I dont know why some people would like this shabby place. This is my fair and honest view.

Cute setting with great and speedy service and choice on the menu - good veggie options and my friends also raved about the seafood! A great way to spend a evening after a big walk! You can also work off some of your meal by running up the steps to the loo! Will return the next time I am in... More

I just want to make other travellers aware of a couple of things. Firstly the apartment is ideal for a cosy weekend in RHB. Do though, check that you are not in the double in the roof where the shower and loo are in the equivalent of a cupboard and you have to climb over partner to get out of... More

They only have around 5 rooms so you need to book early, so a year ahead should be adequate time to allocate a room! When we had completed our C2C walk we wanted a comfortable spacious rooms which had been allocated to friends of our who had booked 2 months previous, so they got the 2 large spacious rooms and...
