We stayed at Gemstones for just 2 nights. Simon was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great - including being part of the home made jam and marmalade experiment! Nothing was too much trouble. There was also a sitting room available if we wished to spread out a bit. We would recommend... More

Chris and Jacky - We stayed in Saphire room with it's private bathroom/shower for 4 nights and it was simply superb.

This is most definitely the best B&B we have stayed in. Breakfast was... More

The B&B is very nice with comfortable and clean rooms and Simon as a friendly, hospitalble host. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice of cereal, toast, jams, juice, coffee and full english breakfast.

We've stayed at Gemstones for a week every august for the last six years, because after our first visit, why try anywhere else? The breakfasts are great, the gardens beautiful even on a rainy morning. You need a car if you stay here, but its a great location to start from, whether you are going to the lovely local beaches...

Stayed in the ensuites rooms as two couples and thought the whole stay was fantastic! will definitely be reccommending it to others as Simon is such a good host and there was no question that he couldn't answer. Breakfasts were great and the placing of the hotel was excellent for visiting so many places.

Nice B&B, amazing garden, friendly cat. If you're staying and don't have a car, I highly recommend carz2go taxis, they saved our skins during our stay! The only thing that could have improved our stay would be 100% cotton bedding.
