Stayed for one night after seeing Brit Floyd at nearby Cliffs Pavilion. Although we were at the top of this guesthouse, hence a few stairs to climb, the room had a great view, was very comfortable and spotless. Plenty of tea bags/coffee etc and biscuits. Breakfast was very good - will keep you going all day! Highly recommended. Thanks to...

Stayed for 1 night recently and couldn't have picked a better place. The building is beautiful and the owners,Garry and Penny, are doing a great job at keeping it at its best.

I stayed in a single room (1) which was small but adequate for 1 person with a shower and toilet/sink in the room too. Lovely breakfast and a professional welcome from the owners. This...

Very clean, warm, staff lovely, Breakfast great, bed comfortable, position excellent. The only problem we had was we do like bedside cabinets but realise there was no room for them, instead drinks and whatever else you might need, you had to put on shelves above the head board, another little problem was how small the bathroom was, after an excellent...

Great afternoon lunch! The jacket potato serving was spot on with fresh salad and homemade coleslaw. No shop bought here! I would recommend to anyone in the area!

Stayed here for one night when travelling for business. Everyone was really friendly. I stayed in room 8, it was a long way up, but the views made it worth while! Excellent WiFi, great food and a comfortable bed. My only suggestion would be better size bath towels. Will definitely stay here again.
