I was pleasantly surprised by this guesthouse, Comfortable accommodation, stunning views of both the mountain and city below and very friendly and helpful hosts. The guesthouse is situated in a very quiet area but still accessible to get there quickly if you have transport. I have seen comments criticising the breakfast setup but I would much rather watch the view...

If you want an impersonal hotel where you come and go incognito this isn't the right place for you.

Redbourne is a great find, and Jonny and Sharon went out of their way to make sure our stay went well (even looking all over town to find a beach bucket and spade for our youngest). The atmosphere is relaxed and the service and breakfast top-notch.
