Visited today to have lunch on the terrace. Very friendly patrons, good selection of food and very tasty cakes. Very nice decor inside if weather was not good, but luckily very nice day when we visited and could sit with a view of the cliff gardens. Would highly recommend.

Meeting up with friends after along time. As you would expect flowing tea, the sandwiches were excellent they were made to order depending on personal preference. Followed by fresh baked scones and selection of cupcakes. There's a great atmosphere here, very relaxed and friendly service.

What a lovely guesthouse in a perfect location. Close enough to amenities but far away from pleasure beach and sea front to not hear the night life. Room was comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was good, although toast was forgotten. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Awesome b&b! Right at the beach, 2 min walk from the high street and pier, in front of the botanical garden as well. It's clean, beautifully kept and the people who run it and work there are extremely kind and helpful! We stayed in the suite and it was amazing, we will definitely be back!
