“Great stay at the Mount”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Jim and Lorraine were great hosts and the property is in an excellent location just 50m back from the beach and a short drive to the shopping area.
The room was so clean, very comfortable bed, and the upstairs guest lounge the perfect place to enjoy a drink and relax.
The breakfast was fantastic, a great choice also. Thanks Jim and Lorraine if we return this will be our first choice to stay.

All the other reviewers have summed this up.A great place to stay at the Mount. Jim and Lorraine are consummate hosts and the property is in excellent condition. Never mind that its a bit of a walk to the Mount and the shopping area, with access to the beach what could be nicer than a leisurely day strolling round this beautiful place. My wife and I are Pomms and The Mount is one of our favourite places having visited here for the last 4 years . The last three years we have stayed in serviced apartments but we shall definitely be returning to the Beachside. Jims breakfast is excellent and he makes sure you get what you want . The view from the guest lounge is superb. You can't ask much more from a B & B.

The beachside bnb, is hosted by 2 great people, Jim and Lorraine made us feel most welcome, it was like staying with family.
The room and the service was second to none.
We would recommend this place to any one staying around the Mount area.

We spent one night at the Beachside Bed and Breakfast and so wish we could have stayed for much longer!
This is a gorgeous place. Jim and Lorraine responded very quickly to our email requests and meeting them was delightful. This home is very tranquil and quiet and in a perfect location to head to the beach - a few minutes walk down a path. They have created a beautiful guest lounge on the top floor with a deck that allows beautiful views, you have access to a kitchen here, you can watch movies or sit and read and this is room full of light in the morning for where you can enjoy your beautiful cooked breakfast.

We would love to explore this area more and if we do we will want to stay at the Beachside B&B.

Room Tip: You do need a car to stay here as it probably is not so easy to walk from the bus stop with luggage.

Hi Cucina,
Thanks for your extensive review. Regarding your points about car and bus. If guests arrive by bus or at the local airport we offer free pick-up and drop-off. The bus stop is only approximately 150 metres away from our B&B.

It is just a great place to stay with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You can actually say it's only a stones throw away from the beach. The best breakfast we had while on our three week holiday. I can't praise Jim and Lorraine highly enough.

Great B&B. Location is a stone throw away from the beach, body surf boards available for guest use. Room very clean and comfortable. Guest lounge available for use with small balcony, great sea views. Breakfast excellent, fresh fruit, orange juice, home made bread, cereals, full cooked breakfast.
Owners Jim and Lorriane make everyone feel really wecome and offer advise on local activities. Can't recommend this B&B enough.

this is our second visit to this very friendly and relaxing bed and breakfast .
Jim and Lorraine are excellent hosts . the rooms are comfortable and very clean
Jim cooks an awaesome breakfast with home baked fresh bread and fruit salad each morning as well as cereals juice and then his lovely cooked breakfast .
the big bonus is the views from the guest lounge and the white sandy beach on the doorstep .
Such a great place will be back next year
