Beautiful breakfast beautiful room. Girl with dark hair who was working when we arrived was very friendly and couldnt do enough for us. Rooms were a bit confusing as ours had no number on the door. Room 15 is fab. Would have liked a choice of coffees. I.e cappuccino latte etc. (Im a coffee snob).

This guest house has a very central location, and good views down to the bay. The team were very helpful, giving recommendations for dining; and serving breakfast early in the morning for me.

Only stayed here for one night but made to feel very welcome by the owner and her son. The room I was given had recently been redecorated to a nice standard.

Thank you for all your positive feedback. We are pleased you liked the new décor and of course breakfast. We have just taken on a new young local member of staff and have taken on board your tips about balancing concentrating with cheeriness. Tricky for a teenager in the morning but I'm sure we'll get there.
