Mariners is a very nice and comfy B&B to stay at. Truly outstanding is the breakfast! The evening before, we were asked to be sharply on time which made us curious! The five diamonds are well deserved, Nigel, a trained chef certainly knows how to pamper his guests! What made me happiest was the plate with sliced fruit - so...

I have to say, I am not often silenced by many places with the attention to detail, the welcome and the help you get and the excellent breakfast. However on this occasion and in the case of this B and B they excelled on all fronts, the rooms had excellent facilities, and were beautifully presented, with little extras like a...

We have just stayed at the Mariners for two nights in Room 2. Lovely views out across the bay. Lovely decor with a slight seaside touch, very apt. Loved Nigel's shortbread. Wonderful breakfast cooked to order. Both Pat and Nigel are very welcoming. Great place to stay. We will be back.

My room had huge windows overlooking the sea. I opened the windows and the sea air and the sound of seagulls filled the room. Car parking was in the rear of the property. I was using this location to visit Seaton, Beer and Lyme Regis. Seaton was the quietest and I appreciated that. Lovely walks by the sea and a...

Just had 3 very pleasant nights at the Mariners, Seaton. We appeared to be the first guests of the season and stayed in room 2 with excellent sea views. The room was clean, comfortable and a good size. Breakfast was excellent - great choice, freshly prepared and plentiful. The fresh fruit salad, in particular, went down very well. Service from...
