I decided to have a last minute one night away with my family and just happened to stumble upon this little gem just a short walk from the town centre .. I called the b&b and they luckily had one room left .. So we booked there and then. To me hospitality and atmosphere of a b&b are so important... More

Don and Julie have a lovely home, only a short walk from the sea front. They make you feel completely at home with their clean tidy and well decorated rooms. The breakfasts are excellent, and nothing seems to be too much trouble. They offer advice on what to see and visit in the local area. We definitely recommend that Kethla... More

We are well travelled and stay at hotels and guest houses frequently whilst on long weekends dotted around Britain. We stayed at Kethla House on 28 April 2016. Unfortunately, we made the mistake of choosing a different place for the previous night. We have never stayed at a place that has ticked "all the boxes". But more than that, Don... More

Julie and Don were lovely, they were very friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to make us comfortable, even making us a snack after our night at Babacombe Theatre! The location is ideal for walking to the seafront or into town and there's lots to see nearby. Highly recommended.

Julie and Don are amazing hosts, really welcoming! Lovely surroundings and the breakfast was even better! The rooms are perfectly sized, exceptionally clean and cosy! 5 minutes walk from the town centre with lots of good (well liked) shops and only another 5 minute walk you'll be at the sea front! We will be back in the summer!
