Imagine ordering from a breakfast menu, at a B&B... And the food is fabulous. This B&B has lots of extras, beach towels and chairs, guest refrigerator, afternoon brownies, coffee and tea all day... IPads in every room with Netflix. There's front porch seating, including a porch swing, and lots of parking in the back. The manager, Chelsea is a wonder...... More

A beautiful Victorian house on a quiet street but within walking distance to the harbour, town and Coast Walk. Parking great and friendly inn keepers to help point you in the best direction. Fantastic choice for breakfast to set you up for the day.

We stayed for 3 nights in The Great Little Apartment, across the garden from the main hotel. Plenty of space and very peaceful, beautiful old floorboards and sash windows. The reception staff were very helpful with suggestions of bars and restaurants, delicious breakfast served on the deck every morning. The surrounding streets are very interesting to wander around with plenty... More
