We stayed just for a night. This is a very good b&b, with both en-suit and shared bathrooms. My room shared bathroom with 2 other rooms, but there is hot and cold water in the room for convenient wash-up. We did not eat breakfast, since we wanted to get a few hours extra sleep. Check-out is at 10am, with no... More

I stayed in a single room for one night. The room decor was a little dated and there was a fragrant scent on the bedspread that made my nose itch a little, but otherwise clean and reasonably comfortable, and the owners very friendly and inviting. The highlight was the slap up breakfast, which was as delicious as it was plentiful,... More

Located only 15-20 minutes walk from the town Center ( or 5-8 minutes with bus ), the Westbank guest house is fairly close to everything. For a guest house it's pretty good and comfortable, but perhaps more suited for a very short stay. The good - Beautiful and spacious room - Friendly reception - Good heating The not so good... More

Located about a 10 minute drive from the ferry port. Basic B&B. Friendly enough staff. Bedroom was very ordinary with a washbasin. The bathroom was across the landing. Unsure if there are en-suites. Bed linen was surprisingly fresh smelling yet the bed and pillows quite used. Ok for a stopover.

Our room was quiet, comfortable and roomy and was quite reasonably priced. The owners were very helpful and friendly and even helped give us advice on traveling through the London area.. The English breakfast was delicious and served quickly. We would definitely stay there again.
