Miles better than we expected by far. We were greeted on arrival by one of the very welcoming members of staff who told us when our room would be ready as we had arrived a few hours early, she also said we had been upgraded to the premier room free of charge as it wasn't being used, which we were...

Modern, stylish B&B with very clean, spacious accommodation, with a lovely communal sitting room. Tucked away off the main road, so no traffic noise, and off street parking. Only a short distance from the town and harbour areas. Very friendly and helpful host.
