Cannot complain about anything. Very friendly owner made me feel very welcome even though I was late checking in. Room was cleaned to a very high standard. I was in room 11 and had the pleasure of sitting on the balcony for my morning coffee with a great view. The breakfast was spot on. The only negative is that I...

Lovely guesthouse with great sea views. Clean, bright room with a nice little jar of 'essentials' for the ladies. Lovely freshly cooked breakfast with self service for toast cereals and fruit. The owner was very helpful and breakfast was prompt dispite being on his own.

Smart guesthouse overlooking the sea - asked if rooms had balcony and was given a room on top floor with a large balcony. Spotlessly clean room with a very comfortable bed. Large car park (free) at the back and delicious breakfast. The owner was lovely and she was very friendly both at check in and over breakfast. Will be sure...

I booked through Booking.com and I booked a Superior room, (Some of which have sea views. Not if they are full, then if you use an agent who takes a percentage you get a room at the back over looking a flat roof). Lets start with the positives. It is easy to find, clean and well decorated, some great pictures...
