“The Best Thing About it was the view”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We had a 4 night stay and paid for a larger room with a balcony, found that the bed was very uncomfortable asked to be moved after 2 night's but was only offered a smaller room.
It was clean but needs updating, and the bed was not made once by staff during our stay the towels where not changed either.
The breakfast was good but no better than we have had at other B&B which where less expensive.

Room Tip: Forget Room 3

My husband, myself and mum-in-law have just had a 3 day break here and we loved it, both rooms were spacious, clean and had everything we needed.
we had rooms with balcony's overlooking the river and sea, the balcony's really make a difference, one of the days was very cold and wet ,so it was lovely to come back to a warm welcoming room.
Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked.
Debbie, the owner was great very helpful and has a great sense of humor.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we are going back again in July !!!

Room Tip: Rooms 7 and 9 on the top floor have balcony's with great views

Just back from a 3 night stay at this lovely guest house. We had great room with a fantastic view overlooking the river and the sea. The room was of a good size and the bed was really comfortable , but the icing on the cake was the balcony. Breakfast was really nice and the owners friendly and helpful. Would I recommend this guest house , yes, would I go back again, yes booked for Easter.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a balcony, choose one of these if you can

We had a large double room with a balcony overlooking the river and harbour. It was clean and comfortable and breakfast was very good with everything cooked to order. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again especially in summer when we could make more use of the balcony.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends
