We chose this place as it was dog friendly. The welcome was warming and the accomodation orovided for the night did not let us down. The only downside of the stay was that the lighting circuit in our room tripped and because ther has been a change of management they were unable to rectify the situation. However a table lamp...

Bed and Breakfast and Self catering all in one room. Although the rooms are in need of refurbishment they are very clean and the owners are lovely. All the rooms are being updated and refurbished at the moment. The breakfast is one of the best I have ever eaten.

We returned for the second year in a row. The hotel is under new management, but has the same lovely location and the helpful self-catering facilities. The waves were beautifully high, which kept us from the seaside walks, but there is plenty to do there, and we had a great time.

Stayed at The Blenheim for 2 nights, it is a family run business and the owners were very friendly and polite and made us feel at home. The rooms were a bit outdated but were clean and comfortable.

Having stayed at the Blenheim for many years it was difficult trying to imagine what it would be like without Ann and Alan, but Alison made us feel very welcome and made sure we had every comfort.
