“Birthday Treat”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

This is the best B&B we have stayed in. The bedroom and bathroom were huge and the bed large and comfortable. The furniture and fittings are beautiful and the guest lounge with the wood fire lit in the evenings, with complimentary port and chocolates was an added bonus and a nice touch. The breakfast was the best we have had and equals the standard of any five star hotel or luxury cruise ship. We could never eat lunch afterwards.
Sally was always pleasant and very helpful.

Elaine and John

This was our first weekend away without the children in FIVE years and couldn't have a picked a more perfect place. We fell in love with the house, especially the room and the non-stop treats everywhere.The crackling fire wasn't too shabby either. It was extremely romantic and idyllic. We'll be back for sure and I would recommend it to everyone.(Ask for the upstairs room!) Thank you so much Sally for everything you did.

Room Tip: Ask for the upstairs room!

Beautiful light filled rooms, decorated with antique furniture including the huge comfortable beds. Lots of delightful extras such as the decanter of port and cut crystal glasses, chocolates and flowers everywhere. Breakfast was superb too. We didn't get to meet Serge but Sally is the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. Most certainly will return.

Room Tip: All the rooms are exquisite.

Even if you are not into the B&B experience Newberry Manor will change your mind. Sally and Serge are wonderful hosts in a beautiful house with spacious rooms, good bath products, inexpensive mini bar and a breakfast to die for. It is just like staying in a first class boutique hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

What a wonderful B&B, in fact it is more like an international Hotel but better. Excellent breakfast, lovely private rooms and clean and spacious bathrooms. Our hosts were very welcoming with excellent recommendations on local eateries. Would definitely stay there again, and again, and again.

Room Tip: We chose the roses room which was excellent but I am sure any room would be just as good.

What a lovely experience it was to stay at Newberry Manor. The house is beautiful, the hosts Sally and Serge are very welcoming, location is just right for a short walk to the beach and into town. We'll definitely be back!

A fantastic B&B with all the comforts of home and hosts par excellence to boot! The breakfast menu is nice and varied and the food was delicious. One of the few places left in the area where you can book in for just one night and not have a minimum stay stipulation. Thank you Sally and Serge once again.
