He was informed by the girl who took the booking that the requested room was available for the dates we required, & she accepted...

Stopped here as an ideal location on completing coast to coast. Didn't feel particularly welcomed. The guy went to check if there was a vacancy (the sign on the door showed vacancies). Once this was established I was offered an en suite room. On entry someone shouted to me "i'm in the shower!" from the (obviously) occupied room. When I...

The view was amazing , the breakfast was lovely and the chef very friendly, but the room was not what we were expecting. The window seat was dirty and the paint on the walls was missing in parts . The bedding was very clean but the towels had a very strange smell. Overall the guest house needs quite a bit...

Our room was superb with an excellent view of the beach and sea that is literally across the road. The hosts are amazing everyone involved is super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was wonderful with the ability to order what you wanted. If you want a friendly, good value, sea front home from home give the Balmoral a call.

Our hosts were very friendly, but we just weren't comfortable here. Our family of four had two rooms. One of the rooms had a double, four-poster bed. It was comfortable enough, and had a lovely view over the water, but waking up to a clear sunny morning had the room incredibly hot and uncomfortable in a very short time. Couldn't...
