Very pleasant experience. Lovely welcome from Andrew who was waiting for us when we arrived quite late. Bedroom was fresh, very clean, tastefully decorated and spacious enough for our short stay. Bed & pillows extremely comfortable. Good quality bed linen. Breakfast room light and airy with vases of fresh stem roses on the tables. Excellent choice of cold food including... More

The owners were very welcoming and attentive. They gave us very good places to dine out and directions for places of interest. The breakfast was very good as well and the rooms very clean and the bed very comfortable. The only low point was that the water pressure was too low.

My en suite room was very comfortable and quiet, everything spotlessly clean. The information book in the room was really helpful, particularly the places to eat listing. Delicious breakfast with plenty of choice. I... More

Excellent guest house very close to the seafront with a warm welcome. Our en- suite rooms were clean, bright and nicely furnished with a very comfy bed. A hearty and/or healthy breakfast was provided. Secure storage for cycles too.
