We stayed here for 2 nights and were blown away by how beautiful the guest house was. We stayed in Room 4 which is off the dining area and the "room" was not a room, it was a suite. The attention to detail was so impressive and the suite was absolutely breathtaking. The turn town service where the leave little... More

Visited Last Word at the end of March 2014. Simply stunning! We used it after a busy ten days touring and stayed there for 6 days. So glad we did - we chilled out completely and had a very restful time. We did not hire a car but the services of local driver Mike were certainly worth the very reasonable... More

Whilst the view from the first floor is majestic if one has one of the ground floor suites the view is merely of a hedge . . Cannot put... More

This place was just amazing. Staff, rooms, food, the view, sunset, sunrise, everything was great. All rooms have a private balcony or access to the garden. There is a swimming pool in the garden, if the Atlantic Ocean is a bit cold (it was). Rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. I loved the fact that they put a small dessert... More

This is a lovely place to stay, right on a sweeping beach with crashing waves. We were welcomed with drinks before being shown to a downstairs room. It was very comfortable and a good size, large open shower with a separate bath and spotlessly clean. You are yards from a fantastic beach with surfers keeping you entertained, the water on... More
