We received a warm welcome from Paul and Carol upon arrival. The room was clean and comfortable, parking not too far away for a reasonable price. Paul was happy to share local knowledge with you on where to go,eat and attractions to see. The breakfasts are delicious and you can eat in the restaurant of an evening with a guest discount. The area is wonderful and everyone makes you welcome. We have stayed here before and we are looking forward to returning soon. Thank you Paul and Carol for a wonderful weekend.

Room Tip: Each room has different features, recommend you visit website and take a look.

Clean, spacious room. Loved the roll top bath and a lovely view down to the harbour from our room. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating and breakfast was yummy. Thanks for a great relaxing stay :-)

We arrived to a very warm welcome from Paul who was really informative about local facilities including places to eat, drink and park. There is long stay 24 hour parking available for £3.10 near the harbour. We stayed in room 1 on the top floor and the views were great. The room was spotless, quality shampoo, conditioner, bath salts and gel were provided. The fridge, wine glasses, DVD player and a choice of DVD's were a lovely touch. We had a top quality breakfast which set us up for the day. we also had an amazing meal in the Olive Room in the evening which included a 15% discount for residents.
For the lovers of real ale, the North Devon CAMRA pub of the year (The Ship and Pilot) is only a couple of minutes walk away and a real suntrap.
We will definitely stay again ....Thank you Paul and Carol from Gary and Claire x
