Landlady was very rude and I nearly left the following morning. Which is a shame because the accomodation was perfect and let down by her rudeness. This situation did get better but left an uncomfortable feeling and was the only bad mark on a brilliant holiday.

Great guest house, really looked after us (group of 8 diving for the weekend). Great value, very nice rooms and excellent cooked breakfast. Spotlessly clean and very friendly owners. Parking is free very close by on street after 4pm. Require a ticket 10-4, but you can get a that from the hotel. Very good central location with the town centre... More

Our stay was great - water piping hot, really comfy beds, spotlessly clean, nice room temperature and the breakfasts we had were amazing (we stayed 2 nights). We did have to share a bathroom but it caused us no problems at... More

Stayed at the moorings for a weekend in early March so I could go to a family party. The room we had was at the bottom of the stairs and was sandwiched between tbe owners' lounge at the front and the guest breakfast room at the rear (if the building was still a house it would be the dining room)....

a great location close to the Hoe and not far from the Barbican via a coastal walk. We had a lovely stay and will go back again - the owners did mention that it can be best to call them directly for the best price rather than go through booking sites too.
