Lovely welcoming place to stay and great breakfast. It was right on the seafront with private parking. The room was very good with interesting books and decor, the bed was very comfortable. It was a birthday surprise for my wife and she enjoyed it very much so.

The owners were very helpful and welcoming and breakfast each morning was a treat (if you went for the English Breakfast then you were... More

An excellent,well furnished apartment with well equipped kitchen and very good toilet and shower provision. The brilliant sea view made the need to climb several flights of stairs worthwhile.Having ample parking on site - despite steep entrance to the car park- was a tremendous advantage.

Excellent hosts. They very kindly took us down to the ferry and allowed us to leave our car in their car park for the three nights that we were away on the island. Very good breakfast where we met fellow Lundy travellers. Normal B&B room with a good shower.
