Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The governor and Evelyn (the governor's governor) and not forgetting Baxter! All make this b&b with bar and dining, outstanding from the wonderful cooked breakfast to the delicious and very generous evening meals. The whole establishment is run on generosity ,care and gracious consideration.

Fantastic village pub with great hosts Grant and Evelyn. The food is fantastic never had a bad meal ever and Evelyn and the locals go out of their way to welcome you. Was my husbands birthday and a cake was brought to him with candles and the whole pub sang happy birthday. You have to book for meals but everything is fresh and hot and real chips as well.

This is a small hotel with lovely people. The landlords Grant & Evelynn are friendly and professional. From the out side it looks small but inside is like the Tardis. The local people are friendly and will chat with you. The food is absolutely knock out (fish platter) something else. I would recommend to any one.

A warm and friendly welcome by the owners. Small but very nice double room with lovely views over the bay. Everything spotlessly clean. Very tasty evening meal and fantastic cooked breakfast. Enjoyed our stay and found it great value for money.

Friendly, welcoming hosts for this early evening supper. Uncomplicated menu, good local pub offering good hospitality to visitors and their obviously loyal local following. Hosting pool players on this particular evening which all added to the feeling of being a real place for real people! Thank you for your hospitality.

We usually stay in air bnb when we are travelling. However this time the air bnb was so bad we had to leave. We were fitted in at very short notice at the Harbour for 3 nights with our wee dog, and honestly could not have had a warmer welcome. We ate on the first night, and had a thoroughly delicious meal. Breakfast each day was spot on , with plenty of it. On the final day the wonderful owner let me stay in the room until late afternoon, as my husband was working. Can’t recommend highly enough.

This is a room above a pub and everything that goes with that. A family home, you literally have breakfast in their dining room. Excellent value for money and the hostess couldn’t do more to help. And a very patient, friendly little King Charles cavalier is at hone. Cheap and very cheerful. If you want posh and grand then this isn’t for you but then you’re not going to get that at this price either. We had a room with a view which ordinarily you would pay a fortune for. Well worth a look around the coast here too, as it’s a lovely spot. Lovely scrambled eggs!!!!

We stayed with Grant & Evelyn for 2 nights at end of June2021 , our first break away from home since lockdown. We were meeting up with friends who have a caravan nearby. We found our hosts to be very friendly & welcoming. Accommodation very clean & comfortable - kettle tea/ coffee, hand sanitiser & toiletries available in our room. Informed if we needed anything just to ask. Breakfast each morning was beautifully cooked & delicious. We had dinner with friends in the bar one evening - tasty home cooked food - fish platter, beef lasagna & scampi. Returned home relaxed and sun burnt! Already booked for August
