Picked this B&B because of reviews on this site. I second everything that has been said about the hosts - they are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to be hospitable. The room was clean and tidy with nice decor, if on the small side. The en-suite was also pretty titchy, but also clean and tidy.
The guest lounge is an added bonus, especially as we were the only people using it. There are no TVs in the rooms, so if you want to watch anything you have to use the lounge. Free WiFi was much appreciated. I expect it, but am surprised how many places don't offer it yet.
The location is a residential cul-de-sac - pretty quiet, and a short walk to the beach. Town is 15 mins on foot.
All in all I'd certainly consider staying there again. It's sort of like a very very high quality hostel rather than a luxury hotel though - not romatic getaway material! Price is reasonable for the level of service from the attentive hosts.
