I had an absolutely wonderful two night stay at West By Five! It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in a brilliant location. I stayed in the single room which was great and had everything I needed (including lovely homemade biscuits!) - I would definitely recommend this for solo travellers. The breakfast was also delicious, with plenty of options and eating round the communal table was great fun. Neil and Sheila were perfect hosts and couldn't have done more for me throughout my stay, suggesting beaches, restaurants and absolutely stunning walks. I wholeheartedly recommend this guest house to others! Thank you Neil and Sheila.

It was great to stay in a place that lived up to the hype, exceeded the reviews and was better than the photos. My wife Yvonne and I traveled for 8 weeks and visited 12 countries but never did we receive a welcome like Neil and Sheila gave us. The accommodation was just as other reviewers have gushed about, but for us it was about the personal touches. Nowhere else did a host or concierge take so much time to answer our questions, give us advice and make recommendations about where to visit or dine. Nowhere else did we feel like we were being looked after by friends rather than helped by somebody who was doing their job.

I stayed for three nights in this fabulous B&B. It is a spotlessly clean, modern B&B with lovely hosts. Excellent breakfast too - perfectly poached eggs, thank you Neil!! It is a short slightly steep walk up from town but nothing too difficult .The B&B really can't be faulted with lots of really nice touches including different home-made biscuits every day, thank you Sheila! I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B
