Reviewed September 22, 2013

3 adults stayed in the flat upstairs. It was small but very cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony and the view. It was interesting to watch the ships unload. We actually stayed there 3 yrs ago, but I am now working on my scrapbook and realized I hadn't written a review. The breakfast was excellent. We had a lovely time there.

Have stayed there before but time seems to have stood still. 1 towel for 2 adults and a kettle that had not been checked or cleaned inside for a while. Just not as clean as it used to be. Will give it a miss next time.

Driftsands Guest House is located in an affluent neighbourhood a short walk from the sea front. Once in possession of the key, access is gained to the yard from an anticlockwise direction via a remote control security door to the side of the property. There are good access roads into town, the seafront road and the airport. Although the accommodation is under the flight path, I only ever remember planes passing in daylight hours as it is a relatively small airport. Most of the self contained bungalow style units adjoining the main house seem ideal for self catering and have all the facilities required for a short break. However due to the nature of the trip, we opted for the nice cooked breakfast which was slightly varied every morning by the manageress. The unit that we stayed in had a sun lounge, an area for sitting outside and most importantly, a comfortable bed.
There is a possibility that I may return to P.E. to repeat my business, in which case I would happily choose Driftsands again as it suited my requirements for the trip.

We (2 adults + 1 child) stayed in the flatlet upstairs which was imaculate and very adequate. It has a lovelly balcony on which we had most of our meals with views over the harbour. Small bedroom and very small bathroom but both adequate, pleasant sitting area with kitchenette and extra daybed. Very pleasant breakfast was provided. The guest house has a small but very pleasant plung pool, lovelly to cool off in. Owners very helpful and pleasant. The guest house is in an excellent position for sea front however it is under the flight path.
