Loved this property. The host was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was beautifully served in our room. We would have liked to stay longer than the one night and would have no hesitation in recommending the Lookout to friends and family.

Nothing to fault this stay, wonderful accomodation, delicious breakfast and stunning views! The owners hospitality and their attention to detail was superb. Close to town and amenities but felt very private.

I stayed just the one night but everything was just right. From the friendly confirmation of my reservation, to the arrangement for a late check in. The self catering room I had has a perfect layout and is ideal for a long stay. I highly recommend The Lookout Guest House

Would not hesitate to recommend this lovely Guest House. Clean, spacious and brilliant breakfast service. Our host Louise was delightful and very helpful. This is the second year we have used The Lookout and will expect to use it again next year.

Everything was top notch; the quality of the accommodation, size of room, beautiful views, wonderful breakfast, friendly and attentive staff and owners, walking distance from town etc. A great stay. Wish I could have stayed longer!
