“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

I stayed here with a friend for two night in May, both our rooms were great and really clean. The breakfast room is very modern and clean, the entire building is kept clean and in very good order. There's a small "honesty bar" in the hallway for drinks and snacks.
Parking is on street but you can usually get very close by. It's situated in a quite residential street but only a short walk from the front and the town. Very nice and will return next time I'm here.

Only stayed 1 night but so friendly and lovely clean place. Would definitely recommend! Look forward to going again! Breakfast was lovely get a good choice.

5 - 10 min walk from the sea front amd from pleasure beach but it down a quiet street. Free on road parking which is a bonus.

I have not stopped in a guest house for 30 years so was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.
Received a friendly welcome from the owner and was shown to our room,a small double,room 2 it had everything you needed including refreshment tray & toiletries in the bathroom. The room was hot which was nice as it was a cool evening. Shower room needs updating and owner said it was due to be done.
There is a fridge (honesty bar) in the downstairs hallway which contains drinks, alcoholic & soft and snacks which is a nice.
The breakfast room was nicely decorated with modern wooden tables & leather chairs, the choice and quality of food was excellent as good if not better than a 4* hotel.
Plenty of free on street parking.
The whole establishment was clean and we would not hesitate to stop here again if we were in the area.

We stayed for two nights in a small double room.

It was an enjoyable experience.

We slept well and enjoyed the stay.

The breakfasts were cooked to perfection. They were consistently good for the whole duration of our stay...they really were great!

I could tell that the owners of the Philmar take pride in the service they provide. Good on them.

Stay here.

Stayed December 2013

Struggled to find somewhere at a good price for two adults and 3 children but so pleased we found this place. Clean friendly and perfect location, quiet but in walking distance to everything. Breakfast was perfect with loads of options for both us and the children. Will defiantly be returning lovely place. Thanks.
