Oh what a wonderful place to stay! Jilly is so welcoming and the place is beautifully bohemian yet chic.
Our room was at the top, eclectic in decor (as is the whole place) and SPOTLESS! It had some beautiful pieces of Art Deco furniture with Jilly's personal touches adding character.
A great selection of in-room refreshments including a bar of delicious Montezuma organic chocolate, and the bathroom goodies were lovely in scent and quality.
Shame I didn't find the complimentary earplugs until the following morning - it was a very hot night so we kept the windows open - the seagulls weren't a problem we are used to them, but the Belvidere's extremely convenient location does mean it isn't the quietest location. However, the convenience outweighed the lorry delivering to the small supermarket down the road at 6.30am!
The breakfast was the best guesthouse experience we've ever had - Started with roasted peaches, yoghurt and muesli - a delicious combination, then full english which was wonderful. Even had 3 types of tomatoes - cherry, standard and sundried. Everything was served in vintage crockery and cutlery and accompanied by lovely 40s swing music - heaven!
Jilly was also very helpful with local info and helped us plan our day - great!
So looking forward to our next visit - thank you Jilly!
Only disappointment was that we didn't have time to really chat to Jilly - next time!!!
