We were made welcome and given good advice as to were to go and eat and to book a table in advance. The location on the esplanade was excellent with only a short walk into either the town centre or the harbour with its restaurants and bars. However, our double room with en-suite was tiny.

What should have been a lovely couple of nights away we spoilt by the shabby rooms, paint peeling off the walls, stained bed linen (not even ironed!!) and filthy unhoovered carpets. I don't think they had ever heard of hoovering the edges. The host was nice enough but kept making excuses for everything. We arrived back on our second night...

For £90 the room was small but perfectly functional. The bed was fine and the linen clean, breakfast was standard. The main thing that lets it down are the grubby carpets/walls and soft furnishings.

This guesthouse comes with B&B. We made a late booking over the long weekend and could only book the twin room facing away from the sea. While it didn't have a great view, overlooking the back of the property and across from a neighbours kitchen, it was away from the hustle and bustle of the Esplanade.. Our room was smallish...

Perfect location! Michael the owner was there whenever we wanted anything. We had the family suite which is perfect with 2 children, it was very clean with lovely beds and a large en-suite. I thought about cancelling when i read some of the reviews, but i am so glad i didn't. Michael was so welcoming, he could not do enough...

Was just reading the other posts and it seems that the B&B changed hosts and category..... to my experience of those days I had a very good impression particularly of Mrs.Sue. We had the room at the top floor, simple and standard, bathroom average size everything in order... breakfast was the best we got from all the B&B's we stayed...
