Lovely friendly hosts, made us feel at home, a lovely house and so clean. Our room at the front of the house was immaculate well decorated and nice and cool on a hot summer night. We slept well, and breakfast was great, with lots to choose from. Will be visiting again when we are next down that way. Thank you... More

This place is just average really. It was clean and had a car space but that's about all I can say to recommend it. The location is ordinary, it's right on a main road and you are constantly bombarded by traffic noise going up and down the street. The curtain is not adequate to block out light so the room... More

Needing somewhere to stay for a single night whilst walking the coast path, and failing to find anywhere nearer to the coast than a mile inland, I thought I'd struck lucky with this place which was cheap and took single night stays, unlike most of the B&Bs along the coast. The room, and separate bathroom, themselves were clean, a decent... More

Yes this is a well-appointed guest house; you cannot say otherwise, the room was well equipped, spacious, clean and well decorated. The single bed was okay for the one night. What surprised me was the lack of a friendly welcome, which I was expecting. I found little evidence of a friendly welcome, it was come in here’s the keys; pay... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and from start to finish it was perfect. We were given a very clean room with good facilities and the bed was very comfortable.
