Very comfortable rooms re-furbished to a high standard. Good hospitality, very welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent food. We were well looked after in every way. Free parking in nearby car parks is a big advantage

You need to book to be sure of a table even in quieter parts of the season. Friendly, helpful staff and good, interesting dishes (e.g. sea bass stir-fry). The desserts sound wonderful and rather than struggle to make up our minds we opted for the sharing platter of cheesecake, fruit crumble and chocolate brownie with ice cream. Delicious!!

Loved this place, so warm and welcoming, beautiful decor and spotlessly clean. Our room was quite small but very adequate and had everything you could want. They do have some balcony rooms which I would book next time. There will be a next time. The bistro is delightful and the food delicious and was the ideal place to celebrate our... More

Lovely room, especially as we were booked into room 3 with a balcony and a stunning view over the bay. As we stayed on Monday evening, the bistro wasn't open so sadly we were unable to sample the menu but the breakfast was delicious and plenty of it! Only downside was when we returned to the room in the evening... More

Only stayed one night but really enjoyed it. Room was well presented and fitted out with ensuite. We had a top floor room. The room did get a little hot even with both windows open. There is no parking in the guest house grounds, instead they give you a pass to put in your car in a public car park... More

Excellent food from a Bistro which seems to pride itself on such. Having the accommodation with it just makes it very convenient. Good location at the top of the hill of the bay. Rooms well decorated and have the facilities you require (bar a fridge - not that you really need it).

Got the last table for the 6pm sitting, which suited as we had travelled and had a couple of hours to rest before walking to the Wayfayer. We both had the plaice, which was excellent. We ordered a bottle of the Black Shiraz, which was very pleasant. My partner was a little disappointed with the choice of beer, as he... More

Booked a 2 night stay for our wedding anniversary with friends and was delighted with the accommodation, breakfast and bistro. Rooms are well decorated, with a very comfy bed, lovely furnishings and very clean. The breakfast was lovely (except for the sausages - but that was perhaps just us!) and all very reasonably priced. Luckily I had booked a table... More
