I had an excellent stay with Carole and Jeff at Victoria Cottage B&B. The welcome was warm and I was told everything I needed to know about my stay, including how to operate the amazing shower in the en suite bathroom. I loved all the little extras like the welcoming piece of Carole's brandy fruit cake and the dainty tea tray with all its other goodies. The windows do not look out directly on the sea, but you can see the sea at a right angle from the window seat. There is also a view of the castle. One thing that came as a bit of a surprise was that there was no TV in the room as this is standard in most places. The website says there is a TV in the top floor suite but does not say there is one in the other 2 rooms (I was pleased to see the website was in English and Welsh, but the Welsh side has not been updated to take account of the change in the number of rooms). There was a radio and as there was free Wi-fi I could watch TV on my ipad.
Breakfast was amazing! As the cooked elements are made to order you have to order the night before, including giving an arrival time. Breakfast is served around one big table possibly with other guests which can make for an interesting experience. There were cereals, including Carole's fruity home made muesli, fruit salad, yoghurt, fruit juice, as well as a full cooked breakfast made from local ingredients, or eggs cooked in various ways. Carole makes all the jams and marmlades herself, one having been made the day before. All so delicious! I would thoroughly recommend anyone thinking of staying in the area to stay here.
