This was our third visit to Bed & Breakfast by The Beach and as usual Chris & John supplied up with 5* GOLD Hospitality, Food & Accommodation. This was the most fantastic find and we can't wait to return again. Thank you so much for another wonderful stay.

Fantastic attention to detail at this very comfortable B&B. The choice at breakfast was wonderful, with fruit, pastries and cooked options. We loved the blueberry pancakes. In the evening we were tempted by freshly baked cakes. John and Chris could not have been more helpful.

Right, here we go and before I start its very important to mention that I almost never write reviews. The general understanding is that you go somewhere, you enjoy your time there and I mean after all you've paid for that right, right? Oh how wrong! B&B by the Beach is something completely different, it's special. As you arrive Chris... More

I did not think this establishment could get any better, but now Chris is offering a free ride, on her and John's cycles. The service at this B&B is 2nd to none, if you get the chance give it a try. The welcome really is like meeting old friends, this was our 5th visit to B&BBtB on our annual pilgrimage... More

After a long slog of a journey, the door to the b and b was opened by the enthusiastic and slightly addictive Chris. When we were shown to our beautiful room it was like all of our Christmases had come at once. Massive bed with crisp, white sheets, waffle dressing gowns and bottles of wine and water. We were delighted.... More

After months of pre-holiday research before even leaving Australia, I reckon we found something really special. Our three day experience staying at the Bed & Breakfast by the Beach was an absolute delight.

This is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. When we arrived there were fresh homemade cakes waiting for us outside our room, delicious. The room was clean, and well equiped. And then there was breakfast. Better than many hotels we have stayed in, all freshly cooked with a wide slection of cereal and fresh fruit. Will... More

We have just returned from our second stay at this really superb B and B.
