Our hosts were very friendly, but we just weren't comfortable here. Our family of four had two rooms. One of the rooms had a double, four-poster bed. It was comfortable enough, and had a lovely view over the water, but waking up to a clear sunny morning had the room incredibly hot and uncomfortable in a very short time. Couldn't...

Balmoral and Terrace Guest House is right on the seafront and within easy reach of the town centre by bus. Has ample off street parking and a great full English breakfast is served by Abby and Paul, who are delightful people. The top floor rooms are small and the beds and linen should be updated but I would still recommend...

Was very disappointed with the whole experience. Very poor standards. Nothing like what we expected having already read reviews on TripAdvisor. The whole place was full of contractors who were working in the area. Rooms were noisy. I was kept awake by noise from the room above. Then woke up early by noise from the same room. Defo won't be...

Stayed here Good Friday for 4 nights as the place we normally stay 2 doors down was fully booked. The room looked ok at first glance but when you tried opening some of the drawers the fronts fell off, the curtains were very thin and didn't fit the window and the bathroom was tiny with no room at all for...
