Positive Reviews

Popular location

The location of this B&B scores top marks from guests. The main appeal is that there is so much to see and do within an easy walk of the property. Guests have enjoyed being so close to the beach and coastal path as well as commenting favourably on the selection of dining options nearby. Unless you plan to explore further afield, a car isn't needed here.

Clean and comfy rooms

Rooms here are found to be of an excellent overall standard. Guests describe the accommodation as spotlessly clean and, although some rooms are a little small, comfortable nonetheless. Rooms are refreshed daily and guests have noted and appreciated extra touches such as cotton buds and mints. Those rooms with a sea view often attract particular praise.

Excellent hospitality

Owners and hosts Mandy and Malcolm are found to offer guests a warm welcome, with many commenting that they felt at home from the moment they arrived. The on-going service is friendly and attentive and comes complete with help and advice about the local area and a delicious home cooked breakfast on each morning of your stay.
