Repeat visit was just as welcoming as the first. Ursula and Brian are perfect hosts. Their guest house is very clean and comfortable, and there's a good selection for breakfast. Great location with wonderful sea views from the front rooms.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view, ask for a front room - but it's quieter at the back.

Me and my partner stayed at Somerton house for 3 nights in August . Ursula and Brian made us feel very welcome, we could not of asked for better host's . Our room was good just a little dated but we wasn't in it much so it didn't bother us. Breakfast was lovely, we both got exactly what we wanted and set us up for the day. I would definatly recommend staying at Somerton house.

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful guest house. Ursula and Brian are such wonderfully welcoming hosts, who can't do enough for you. Our room was very comfortable with an en suite and a lovely sea view. The breakfast was superb, filling us up for most of the day. We would highly recommend the Somerton, and we hope to return in the near future.

Ursula and Brian made us feel very welcome and we couldn't have asked for more. We stayed with our 9 month old son and they privided us with a cot and toys for the duration of our stay which was so helpful as we had travelled from Ireland so couldn't bring much with us. Breakfast was top notch. We stayed in the newly renovated family room which had a beautiful view of the sea and was very comefortable. Highly recommended!
