We had a wonderful overnight (only wish it could have been longer) at this idyllic Bed and Breakfast. It was a cold night as the Surrounding Ranges had a good covering of snow. You could feel the cold as you got out of the car. However the room was warm and cosy. I grabbed an extra blanket being such a... More

I was skeptical at the beginning as it will be our first time to try a B&B (we usually book hotels). I booked this B&B as a surprise weekend getaway for my hubby and was glad that I chose Bendamere. Room was modern, tidy and warm enough during winter. It was quiet and cozy during our stay, we didn't get/feel... More

What a delightful B & B. Stunning view of mountains and sea, tidy well appointed room, easy walk to town and a warm and welcoming host. Julie made us feel very welcome. Great recommendation for dinner, lovely breakfast and a blueberry muffin each for the road. Very happy to recommend.

Excellent location, short stroll to restaurants, cafes or the Whale Watch Tour station. View from our room was spectacular. Julie, the host, is very friendly and helpful. The room has everything you need. Wifi worked well. Continental breakfast included a range of cereals, toast, ham & cheese croissant and fresh coffee. On our first morning Julie also offered us muffins... More

Stayed here for 1 night......the best view in town, best service form a host. We were amazed at how clean and well prepared the room was..........Just a well thought out accomodation. The room only had the basics as far as bar fridge, tea and coffee makings, but made up with the seating, verandah...not to mention a superb yard area outside......... More

This was a great location - a superb view of the ocean, and a very short walk down to the main street with lots of shops and restaurants. The room was cute, comfortable and clean. Hostess was very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great.

We had a lovely stay at Bendamere House. The host was very helpful and friendly. Our room seemed a bit old and outdated, but it was clean and a nice size. Delicious shortbread cookies were waiting in the room for us upon arrival. The patio opened to a beautiful cliff top that overlooked the ocean. Breakfast as very good and... More
