First visited this Guest House 38 years ago when owned by Pearl and Tom Hunter. It was a fantastic place filled with kids and dogs. Pearl and Tom retired some 9 years ago followed not long after by their deaths. The Guest House was taken over by the wonderful John and Janet. The time and effort they have put into...

Spent three nights here on a short break with two kids and dog. We were made very welcome by the host John, who was very attentive to any requirements. Room was comfortable with access to the terrace with view of north bay. Excellent breakfast.

Recently stayed for 2night with my parents in room 6 and myself and dog in 10. Lovely and clean and very welcoming. Couldn't ask for more. On arrival, outside looks run down but once in side you couldn't ask for more. Breakfast was one of the nicest I've had and I stayed in B&B's regular. Would definitely return.

Sitting on the balcony sofa, drinking a G&T in the evening watching the lights along the bay was magical. The room was spacious - 2 adults and 2 large...

Visited with my elderly father and his dog. I don't think that we could have had been treated any better anywhere. Janet and John are a lovely couple who went out of their way to make things nice for us. It was convenient for us to eat there each evening as my father wasn't able to walk far. In the...

A very friendly welcome and very informative about dog friendly places to eat and drink. Clean room but quite tired décor, but I believe they are updating. Lovely breakfast with wonderful views. Would stay again.
