Lovely hotel, friendly owners, clean rooms, great breakfast. Very close to harbour/bars/restaurants. Great value. Just perfect!! We visited with another couple who enjoyed it just as much as us. It was nice that the owners made the effort to speak to you and make you feel welcome. I would definitely return.

This was a very pleasant experience. The Palms is the most luxurious B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything was delightful, the room, breakfast and the owner. Very comfortable bed with in-room tea/coffee supplied. A very good price at £55 a night (breakfast included) for 2 people. I highly recommend The Palms.

Although there is limited parking and lots of steps the hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. The breakfast choice was excellent , not to missed. Our room (8) had all the usual facilities plus a mini fridge which was a nice touch. Very clean with comfortable beds. Only a few yards from the harbour which was great. Would definitely stay...

We booked in for seven nights, and it was a lovely relaxing stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was really good, best nights sleep in a long time. Breakfast was always good, cereals, toast, full English, all good. Nothing was too much trouble.
