We stayed here for a night at short notice when the weather forecast was too bad for camping! Jon and Caroline were very welcoming, cooked a great breakfast and were really helpful in suggesting days out locally. The rooms were very fresh and recently refurbished and the beds were extremely comfortable. The road is quiet and an easy 10-15 minute... More

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay in The Woodlands where attention to detail is clearly top of their list. Great breakfast and comfortable, spotless room. The owners were so helpful and gave great advice (restaurants and things to do) which made our stay so enjoyable.

On arrival we were greeted by John who gave us a very warm welcoming. John took his time in explaining everything we needed to know during our stay and also provided us with a map showing us the walking directions into town. The room we chose had a view of the pretty garden. The room was very clean and a... More

This hotel is in a good location if you like steep hills. Had a room with a balcony which was nice but needs upgrading, the floor of the balcony needs restoring and was quite small. Did not have much privacy with the windows opened as next door could see me lying on the bed. The door of the balcony squeaked... More

Myself and my boyfriend had a lovely 3 night stay here and we thoroughly recommend it. We attended a wedding at Tunnels Beaches which was just 5 min walk down the road so very convenient. The harbour and restaurants are only about 10 minutes walk away so a superb location. The bed was very comfy and the room was spotlessly... More

This guest house is lovely, We had a fantastic stay in a really pleasant and well run establishment. The room was very clean and had recently been tastefully redecorated. The owners clearly take pride in the level of service they offer - which is excellent. They take the trouble to get to know you and take care of small details... More

Caroline and John were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble, breakfasts were superb, rooms perfect altogether 1st class. Ideally situated with a short walk from the town centre, also ideal for connecting roads to the beautiful surrounding countryside.
