Great guest house, friendly hosts, lovely room with fab view over the sea. Excellent restaurants just a short walk (in heels) away in village - we had a lovely time - would recommend for a quiet adult break.

Enjoyed 2 nights in this friendly B&B. Our room was lovely and spacious overlooking the sea and the castle. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the service was excellent, and we where very happy to have gluten free sausages and toast provided. Will definitely be back!
