Rooms are comfy, had a great sleep both nights, bathrooms are on the small side but are en suite and spotlessly clean. Love the super lamp above the mirror, perfect...

I would 100% recommend here to anyone, John and Ellen were amazing. As a young couple on our first holiday we were made to feel very comfortable as they go above and beyond. Lovely rooms, lovely breakfast and a lovely family, and even better they are so central. Thankyou so much.

Very welcoming guesthouse. John and Ellen run a very relaxed and friendly set up in a great location within minutes of town and the best fish and chip shop. Breakfast is freshly cooked and huge - twice the size of usual breakfasts. Only slight criticism would be about the quality of the bedding and towels, but at such a reasonable...
