My husband and I recently stayed in one of the new premium rooms over the bank holiday weekend (and cricket festival week). It was absolutely fantastic! A comfortable clean room, beautiful sea views and a spacious bathroom made it a luxurious stay. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The B&B is in a good location for the cricket ground, Peasholm park,... More

We had a twin room at the rear of the guest house, I have never seen such a clean bathroom, the bedding was lovely too. The room was a little dated but couldn't fault it for the price we paid. Good location, welcoming hosts, helpful with parking and checking in/out. No complaints.

Nice clean rooms, owners are very friendly, the breakfasts are superb, all sorts of cereals and fruits, would certainly stay here again, the best rooms are on the front but the other rooms are slightly smaller but very comfortable and airy, could not find anything to complain about,,,, if it's good enough for Dickie Bird it's good enough for me.

Very friendly staff, nice clean shower room and the breakfast was very good indeed. The down sides were that the room was small for a double and the bed was low and uncomfortable. Also the noise from North Marine Drive traffic made it difficult to sleep some nights.
