I stayed at Thornloe with my mother and toddler daughter. Firstly, Thornloe is a comfortable and clean house, with lovely views that make breakfast special, looking out over water and Islands. Our room was clean, although a bit small, but comfortable enough. While it didn't have ocean views, it was pleasant. During our stay, it was quiet and noise wasn't an issue for us. The location is quite central, although the roads are narrow, and the car park quite small. Our hire car was a little long (although not unusually, it just wasn't a little hatchback or 3 door) and we had trouble fitting it in the car park. While we did arrive late, we immediately felt slightly unwelcomed. A feeling that stayed with us until we left. Having stayed at other welcoming and friendly B&Bs in GB before arriving at Thornloe, we were more aware of this during our stay. The order form to fill in the night before for breakfast seems a little formal, but I can see how it would be helpful. When filling it in, I also had to fill it in for my 2 year old, who can be fussy. I ordered for her a little selection of things, with a hope that she would eat some of it (which had not been a problem at all in any of the other B&Bs we had stayed in), which caused the host to be a disapproving of us, reminding us that they don't charge for small children. I don't think that was necessary. While I wouldn't tell anyone not to stay there, I just feel that sometimes these little things can just take away from a happy and hard earned holiday.
