We recently stayed here in one of their twin rooms at the top of the house. The stay was comfortable and clean with good facility's and an excellent freshly cooked breakfast. The only down side is the shared bathroom and having to park two streets away! These point aside, and excellent place to stay and would certainly stay here again...in... More

Excellent location excellent room very clean excellent breakfast would thoroughly recommend. It was walking distance to the beach and all central pubs. Lovely landlady who was very helpful. We were there for one night only and met loads of nice people. We are already trying to work out dates when we can return for longer

Sharing a bathroom/shower is a bit odd in this day/age but twin room at the top of the house was clean bright and comfortable. Magda the lady who runs the Guest House is an absolute superwoman and I hope the owners appreciate her - from meet and greet at check in, advice about where to eat locally, to a fantastic... More
