Had 3 night stay at Bamboo. The host is very welcoming and happy to help. The hotel is situated in the city centre and so the various amenities are close by. The hotel and rooms kept in good order and are very clean. The continental breakfast provided is very good.

Stayed here for one night with my husband and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the black and white room, the decor was lovely and the room was spotless. The complimentary water was a lovely added bonus! The manager was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. I am vegan and he went out of his way to check ingredients... More

I stayed here for just one night but it completely exceeds any 'guesthouse' expectations you might have - or not, if you've already read all the other glowing reviews on here. I stayed in the single room; this was compact, but comfortable and very well equipped - with its own (separate) bathroom. I slept really well. I was completely at... More

I stayed at the Bamboo Guesthouse this month and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It is in an ideal location - close enough to the town centre and seafront to be able to walk to both but far enough away from both to be quiet and peaceful. The whole house is presented to a very high standard with the rooms being... More

Situated right in 5 minutes walking distance of the town, the Guesthouse was in the perfect spot for a few days out and about in the town and by the beach.

We stayed in the bamboo guest house for a conference. We were greeted and settled in by the manager at a time that suited us. The room was clean with personal touches, great value for money. The continental breakfast was great, good selection and available until 12pm... freshly laid out and croissants done to order. We would definately recommend and... More

Bamboo guesthouse is without a doubt the cleanest most comfortable guesthouse I have ever stayed in!

Having just finished a very satisfying continental breakfast I am about to leave this very pretty boutique guest house. Good location. Very clean. However given we have paid £115 per night I would of expected a reasonable sized room. We stayed in the roses room which must of been the box room. There was just about 6" of floor space... More
