We had a three day break and chose this B&B because it had excellent reviews, it was close to town and had car parking. It lived up to our expectations, the rooms were clean and tidy, plenty of tea and coffee. The breakfast was excellent with delicious bacon. The owners, Mark and Sandra, were welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.

A very pleasant B&B both near to the beach, town and local railway where you can get the steam train for a day trip. Room has everything you expect of a B&B with a good shower within the ensuite along with tea/coffee making facilities and biccies. Breakfast was very nice with eggs cooked to perfection. Wish I could cook them...

Had a short stay with my wife. I must say that it is an excellent value establishment. Tucked away location, within easy walking distance from the coast. Owners very welcoming, helpful and affable. A quiet room with a good power shower, and a hearty breakfast freshly cooked. Would return again if visiting the area: excellent value.
