“Good accommodation - but”
Reviewed November 25, 2008

This is an odd place. We expected a B&B, but it is not. It is self catering but they supply you with the bread, cereal and eggs, etc, for you to make your own breakfast.

Robe House is an attractive old building converted into 5 apartments. These are funished with old style furniture in keeping with the building. I believe some are just a bedroom with a kitchenette but ours had two bedrooms, a comfortable sitting room with a log burning stove, a kitchen and a large shower room. The owners had left us with logs and paper to get the stove going, which we did because the only other means of heating was portable electric heaters.

Robe House is very close to the small harbour and beach and about 10-15 minutes walk into town (depending which end othe main street you are heading for.

  • Liked — rustic charm
  • Disliked — self catering, not exactly a B&B
