Jane and Mary are so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is a feast and the rooms are spotless. Central location but in a quieter street so we had a great night's sleep. All in all excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights. Myself and my two teenage sons in the family room. No. 5 was clean and well presented. The breakfasts were fab. It's in convenient location for the harbour and town. My 13 year old son said he could happily live there - praise indeed. Can't go wrong with No. 5.
