Stayed at the briarfields for a weekend away with my boyfriend, we were very impressed with the standard of customer service, we were late for the last check in at 9pm and were greeted warmly. Very happy with the room, extremely clean and modern with a great sized bathroom and plenty of room to relax, and a comfy bed. Breakfast...

My boyfriend took me here for our anniversary. Amazing night away. We had flowers and champagne waiting for us in our room. Lovely couple who run it and couldn’t do enough for us. Will definitely be staying here again. Couldn’t fault a single thing. Highly recommended.

In the area for a couple of days on business, lovely couple, fantastic room and superb breakfast. Free internet/roadband was exceptionally quick, a real bonus. Will definately be my hotel of choice when in the area again.

Very friendly and welcoming, room modern and spotlessly clean. Good choice of breakfast, hosts couldn't do more for you and always ensure you have everything you need. Town is a 15 minute walk or short taxi drive away. Will definitely visit again!

This was a beautiful place to stay. From the moment we walked inside we were impressed by the welcome, the style and the cleanliness. Our room was lovely. Tastefully decorated with plenty of space, a fantastic power shower, a very comfortable bed and lots of little luxuries. Trish and Pete were friendly and informative - full of local knowledge and...

Pete and Trish were excellent hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, everything was immaculate. Would recommend it to anyone and hope to return again soon! Pete and Trish were extremely helpful in giving us advice for local facilities and attractions. It's a good base for exploring as within walking distance of the seafront and town.

Wow what a place this is. From the moment you walk in to a very welcoming area and the welcome from the owners themselves, we know this was going to be good. We were in Room 6, classes as a suite, and "sweet" it was. It was clean, comfortable and the shower was to die for. The whole building was...
