Sorry no breakfast! I stayed at the Red House Guest House with my daughter on 18.11.16. The booking didn't include breakfast so when it was confirmed I emailed the guest house to request breakfast be included. I was told this would be no problem and asked to confirm the night before. When we arrived I wasn't asked whether or not...

What a shame for posting such a negative response considering you do not read your email responses, yes you did order a breakfast by email which you were asked to confirm the night before, as you did not confirm it was assumed that you wanted breakfast elsewhere as some people do. At this time of year we are running our...

A warm and friendly home-from-home, excellent breakfast and a clean and comfy room. The place is filled with nice little touches, and the owners are such welcoming and lovely people. Although we were only there for a few nights, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend this B&B enough.

A lovely place to stay for three nights, ideally situated for town and beaches. Great room and cracking breakfast in the morning with friendly and relaxed hosts. What more could you ask for.

Quite apart from the location, the beautifully decorated rooms and corridors what really made this a special and memorable visit were the owners Nick and Karen. They were super friendly and helpful, gladly dishing out great and useful advice on what to do and where to go. The house had a very friendly atmosphere and was spotless everywhere, the room...

My teenage daughter and I stayed in Room 4. We were very comfortable. Two comfortable single beds, TV, fridge and lovely ensuite shower room. We had breakfast which was very good. The owners made sure that we had vegetarian sausages as we'd requested. Not quite enough parking spaces for all guests, so we had to park on the road. We...

Great rooms, clean with all you need for a weekend away with superposition for the beach during the day and the town for the evening. Tight parking on site for a big car but plenty of space on the roadside
