We stayed at the Willows for one night in between Xmas and New Year. We were greeted by the new owners Jon and Lynn. From the second we walked into the B & B we were made to feel very welcome with a cuppa, chat and offer of biscuits. This very small but significant gesture showed us that we were going to be looked after even if it was for one night.
Our room was immaculate, very tastefully decorated and when it DID finally stop raining, we found we had a lovely view of the harbour and town.
As an ex serviceman, I know a good full English breakfast and this did not disappoint. For those of a delicate nature there were plenty of alternatives and Jon was all to happy to conjure up whatever took your fancy. Well served, unhurried and plenty of drinks dispensed by Lynn.
This is a small stones throw from the town centre at most 2 mins.
We thoroughly recommend the Willows and will certainly be going back.
