I hesitate to write this review, because my partner and I would like to keep this place a secret, but we had a really nice time at this b&b and thought it only fair to tell about it.
Firstly, Donna is an experienced hostess who made us feel very welcome - she made arrangements for us to arrive at an hour outside of the normal arrival time, and as well made us a delicious homemade breakfast for our early start. She provided us with travel details to her place, knew a lot about the area, assisted us with getting to the park (sandbanks are gorgeous!) and as well we could use her private beach ( big plus!).
Definitely above what I was expecting, especially because it was a very busy time for business.
Initially I was perplexed as to why she charges so little for her rooms, but they are everything the website claims - a good size, clean, easy access to the beach, and all 3 options had private entrances, so I didn't mind about there being no bathroom attached to the room - it was nice to get out and see the other guests and their children. It was generally a friendly atmosphere and we felt we got a very good price, considering the location. We stayed in the 'beach front' room, and next year I hope to stay in the 'gnome cottage'. I'm totally sold on b and b's now!
