We visited here last year - thought it was ok and decided to come back. Have to say this time around was an improvement. Looks like there has been a bit of work done in the rooms and thought breakfast was an improvement as well. Still having nice thoughts about the sausages! No hesitation about coming back for a third... More

Thanks Lynne, for another pleasant stay at the Ainsley. If you go to the Ainsley ask for room 4 which overlooks the bay the views are spectacular. The rooms are spotless and they have a recycling bin in each room for you to put your recycling rubbish which is really good. There are so many nice touches that the owners... More

I stayed at the Ainsley for a week and I loved it. They make you feel at home. Lynne couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Comfortable room and great views. I also have to highlight the quality of the English breakfast which is locally sourced. Highly recommended

Stay for one night only, wish we could stop for longer. Had a room with sea view, which was absolutely amazing. Pleasantly surprised and good value. Breakfast was served between 8 and 9 so only one hour slot but that didn't bother us at all and food was really tasty. Suberb lactation rights in the middle of South and North... More
