“Excellent stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

We stayed at the Bon Ami on a one night stop-over. Julie & Barry were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was nice & large, with a four poster bed and en-suite. There was plenty of tea & coffee making supplies including nice size mugs as opposed to tiddly cups you sometimes get! Breakfast was excellent! Lots of cereal choice, fruit juice, fresh coffee and a lovely cooked breakfast to follow. My husband is glucose intolerant and I had asked about sugar-free cereals, so he had a choice of weetabix or bran flakes.
Highly recommended! We will certainly go back if in the area again.
Easy to find with parking right outside

We stayed in the Bon Ami in August 2010 and had such a great time we stayed there again in August 2011. Both times we stayed in the best room with the 4 poster bed and the sea view and we found the value for money fantastic. Julie and Barry were great and even though Fried Bread wasn't on the breakfast menu, Julie did some for us and did it a treat. The Sausages were so good we even asked her where she got them from! Both times we found the room very clean. Parking is easy right outside and though the guesthouse is a 15 minute walk from the town centre it's along the sea front. We hope to stay there again.

This guest house is what you expect for the price, adequate rooms and service.

I paid £40 for a single room which had 2 single beds in in and an en suite.

The breakfast was very poor, low quality sausages and bacon and the whole dining room smelt of burnt bacon.

I would not have commented on Trip Advisor for any of the above as you get what you pay for, however, on check out when I paid my £40 for my room, I was stunned by the owners comment ................... "I'll let you off this time but you should really pay more than £40 as someone slept in the other bed in your room"

This was said in front of a dining room full of guests and everyone looked at me in disgust. I went on to explain that my friends' (who were staying in another room on Bon-Ami) 4 year old daughter slept in my room that night, but unfortunately the damge had been done and I ended up leaving the guest house rather red-faced even though I had done nothing wrong.

It wasnt until my friends and I left and discussed this comment that we wished we'd said that their daughter didnt use her bed in my friends room so therefore this comment was unwarranted.

Needless to say, I will not be staying here again or recommending anyone else to.
