Tell you what, the photos on the website don't lie! We stayed in the Emmanuel suite which was a beautiful luxurious blue room. The whole house is absolutely stunning.
Sian and Mark made us most welcome and were very informative on the best places to visit. The guest house is well located for shopping, the beach and Gunwharf quays. We went everywhere and did a lot of walking!
Mark's cooked breakfast was very tasty and I really appreciated the veggie sausages and the fried bread cut into fish shapes, scrum!
Definitely visiting this guesthouse again.
