We spend one night but we ended up wondering some more. The facilities were clean and nice and the location is good too. Walking distance from lovely Cockington is a plus. The staff was really lovely and caring. We look forward for another time to a quiet relaxing stay.

A wonderful welcome and comfortable place to stay, serving excellent breakfasts on the English Riviera coast! Hosts are very welcoming and offer comfort surroundings to stay, a good base from where you can explore the area.

We stayed for 3 nights in November whilst visiting relatives. The new owners are really welcoming and the food fantastic! Our room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Brilliant value in a lovely setting, very convenient for access to the seafront. We will definitely be returning again soon.

The location is a one minute walk from the beach and a 20 min walk along the seafront to the centre of town, this really is a top spot that you should consider over the larger hotels. Breakfast is included and...

Fantastic stay, made to feel right at home; in fact we actually called it home, during a slip of the tongue!
