This is an excellent small B&B with ample car parking. Our room was large, airy and very comfortable. There were many extra touches that made this an very enjoyable stay. A fridge with fresh milk and chilled water to use. The owners, Alan and Marilyn, were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the island.

Our first visit to "Rosemary" was in 2009, and we have returned every year since. Alan and Marilyn have become good friends as well the most genial of hosts, and we would not think of staying anywhere else for our annual short break on the Island. It is very difficult to think how it could be improved upon.

A beautifully kept property that only has 2 rooms. The most friendly hoteliers you could hope to meet. Lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, fresh water and milk in the fridge for guests, lovely complimentary home made cake, and quality shampoos and shower gels. Breakfast was superb and they even went shopping for my girlfriend specifically due to certain allergies. A... More

We stayed at the Rosemary for 4 nights and could have stayed much longer - like forever! A friendly warm welcome from Marilyn and Alan, nothing was too much trouble, from advice how to get to places to putting some wine glasses in our room for when we returned in the evening. The house was lovely, the ensuite room spacious... More

We had such a lovely 2 night stay last year we didn't hesitate in wanting to stay again and this year booked 3 nights. Marilyn and Alan make you so welcome, the rooms are so comfortable, bright and nicely decorated and have everything you need. The breakfasts are delicious. Hope to visit again next year.
