The location of this Guest House is fantastic, on the front within waking distance of the castle, toffee makers, village centre, two hotels and small restaurant, but the room..........
We booked our holiday in February sending a deposit asking for a double room with a sea view! We got the tinest room possible. The window (which you could only look out of by kneeling on the bed) looked onto the derelict building next door, you could see the sea if you really angled your neck! The room was so small that the shower cubicle didn't fit in the en-suite and was jammed next to the bed! It was difficult to sit on the toilet comfortably! You couldn't change the volume on the TV so if the tap was running, cistern filling, kettle boiling etc you couldn't hear the TV!
There were a couple of much larger front facing rooms which we glimpsed through open doors!
Breakfast was good, except you had to share a table we joined two individual travellers who quickly finished and left. The proprietor took our order but made no effort to clear their debris. Five times she walked out of the dining room back to the kitchen empty handed, in that time she could have easily cleared the table. So we had to eat amid their dirty plates and cups, not nice!
The proprietor did not remember receiving our deposit, but accepted our word!
