Brilliant service & excellent breakfast 😄 We stayed for just the Saturday night 11th February & although the town was dead, we loved our stay. The only slight drawback was the steep driveway, if you don't mind scraping your bumper!! Fantastic & good old fashioned service, thank you.

Gabriel house was just perfect in nearly all aspects. Double room with sea view is a must. There is a room with four poster but that did not have the sea view. So bear that in mind 'cos you will want to visit here! The room was tastefully decorated throughout. Not in a modern style, definitely period, but very fresh....

Stayed here for an overnight business stay. Nice friendly welcome and the hearty breakfast is fabulous. Room I stayed in was spacious and had a sea view. It's old fashioned but has character and en suite was very modern and functional. Free wi go too. Overall, great location and nice place to stay.

Lovely welcoming place to stay and great breakfast. It was right on the seafront with private parking. The room was very good with interesting books and decor, the bed was very comfortable. It was a birthday surprise for my wife and she enjoyed it very much so.

The owners were very helpful and welcoming and breakfast each morning was a treat (if you went for the English Breakfast then you were...

An excellent,well furnished apartment with well equipped kitchen and very good toilet and shower provision. The brilliant sea view made the need to climb several flights of stairs worthwhile.Having ample parking on site - despite steep entrance to the car park- was a tremendous advantage.
