The location is perfect overlooking the South Beach. Ursula and Brian were very welcoming when we arrived and very chatty with our children. We stayed in the Family Room, room 3, which has a lovely sea view. The room is recently redecorated, very comfortable and has a fridge with complimentary water.

The breakfast was huge, much to my husband’s delight. Great value for money and will definitely stay there again. Thank you!

booked The Somerton last minute and was not disappointed. It overlooks the beach, the owners were very friendly and the full monty breakfast was to die for. We stayed in room 7 which overlooks the beach had a four poster bed and was very comfortable and all for £62 a night, very good value would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: room 7 overlooks the beach.

After four visits at Somerton Guest House, we cant recommend them to highly enough. Their bubbly personality, makes it feel like home from home and nothing seems to much trouble. The breakfast is excellent that sets you up for the day and the rooms are very comfortable and has all that one needs for an enjoyable stay. We will be back !!!
From Wendy And Keith

Room Tip: Will leave that decision to Ursala and Brian

I've stayed at Somerton House occasionally for many years. The location is superb, overlooking the beach and (out of use) pier. For birdwatchers, the pier has nesting kittiwakes. The location was greatly improved when the new main road into town entered and the beach road is effectively just local traffic, so you can park on the road immediately outside.

I've enjoyed the quirky decor in well-appointed bedrooms but understand why Brian & Ursula are making a complete overhaul. They put me in a newly-decorated family bedroom with sea view and it was lovely. Neat and uncluttered. Very comfortable bed. Fridge cabinet is a nice addition. Full english breakfast as it should be. Brian and Ursula were very attentive, willing to take on comments (so I'm not saying what caused 4/5) and are determined to make everyone's stay top-class. I really look forward to staying again.

Room Tip: sea views are wonderful but you do get the earliest dawn in the UK so ask for a room at the back if...

We were delighted with this guest house and the room had everything you needed. The owners were very helpful and friendly and could not do enough to please. We will definitely stay here again. The breakfast was superb and a great choice including kippers which pleased my brother-in-law.
We wish the owners success in their new venture.
