Recently returned to this wonderful B&B for the third time. Great location, just a short walk to the harbour and some lovely restaurants. The B&B offers high standard, comfortable and very clean accommodation with lots of thoughtful touches. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice to suit all tastes. The host are extremely welcoming and helpful.

What a great location and accommodation within a traditional terrace of houses overlooking the harbour. My wife and I booked in here at short notice, to combine a business appointment with a short stay - three nights in late August. Although compact our room was beautifully furnished with a right comfy double bed. We had all the facilities tv and...

I stayed for 1 night with my family back in August as we were travelling around the area. The house looks rather small at first, but you walk in to a beautiful living area with amazing views across the harbour. The owner is very welcoming and friendly, and showed us up to our rooms. The rooms are very tastefully decorated,...

We had been told there wasn't a car park at the hotel, but were able to park safely on the road very close to the hotel.

We cannot praise Sharon and Daryl enough - facilities were ultra clean and modern, lots of 'extras', friendly hosts, lovely sea view from our balcony and one of the best breakfasts we've had in a hotel. Highly recommended!
