Just spent a great weekend at the Mowbray. We were made to feel at home and the room we had was very large & spacious and the cooked breakfast was delicious. The location is very good and within walking distance to most things. Will definitely stay there again.

I visited this place in Easter 2016. The room was really nice and clean, very nice and friendly service, delicious traditional english breakfast, free parking on the street, a few minutes walk to the beach and a good price at the end. I highly recommend

The rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable, and the cooked breakfast was amazing. All the staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble - thank...

Just spent last night in the lovely Mowbray. Booked last minute because the hotel I booked for Sat night cancelled on Friday evening. Couldn't have worked out better for me. The Mowbray was friendly and welcoming. The single room was more than roomy enough. The breakfast was delicious. Bed was comfy. Shower was hot. Who could ask for more. So...

I have had the pleasure of spending the last 10 days here. It has without doubt been the best guest house I have ever stayed at in 20 years of business travelling. Rooms are great, staff very helpful and has some really good features like an honesty bar that makes life even more comfortable here. Try the breakfasts. Great selection...

This is a great little hotel to stay in. Really low prices and a warm welcome. Free parking too!! Breakfast was amazing. The rooms are slightly dated but very clean and comfy, we slept really well. A stones throw from the seafront and 5 mins from town. We will definitely highly recommend and will stay again!

The staff are very welcoming and very accommodating. The superior double comfortably fits two adults plus the travel cot provided. The breakfast each morning is excellent with a cold buffet followed by cooked to order hot breakfast. The lift access makes is easy get up to all the floors. This is very good value for money.

We had a well furnished room which had a good attention to detail. Although there is only street parking available we were never parked more than 10m from the front door. The proprietors also allowed for a great deal of trust which enhances the homely atmosphere and also provided a topical and seasonal menu in their bijou restaurant; the breakfasts...
