The location was very good for us, just across from the path following the cliffs and providing periodic access to the rocks. Downtown was also a short walk and the area was found to be safe. GREATSPOT

This is a very professionally run establishment, with magnificent (and Large) bedrooms, which we thoroughly enjoyed staying in. Extremely friendly and helpful owners, who obviously enjoy what they are doing. Lovely breakfasts.

Good service, bright and clean room, Little bit too far to walk to town, but short way to the sea promenade. Safe parking.OK WiFi reception in certain areas of the premises. Nice location overlooking the sea.

This was a wonderfully luxurious stay – we were in three upstairs rooms which have an amazing view and almost every amenity you could want. Initially I was hesitant to stay in a place directly on the road but it really is a quiet country road and didn’t impact out stay at all. The easy access to the nature area on the cliffs was great – you simply walk out of the front gate and cross the road. The booking and payment process was smooth, and we were well accommodated to a full continental breakfast well before the usual time. The only things missing were decaff coffee and internet in the rooms. You do need to use the directions to find On the Cliff as the (spacious) parking is accessed from behind the house. It was perfect for us.

We thought this to be a great stay - location, rooms, service and breakfast all excellent. Charmaine & Hilton were very good hosts. Would certainly stay here again. Also, you must try the Harbour Rock restaurant for dinner - only just down the road at the new harbour.
