We planned to stay on Hornby for three nights but were sadly disappointed and left after only one night. We were greeted by a welcoming host and a funky house.The one room you have access to is is the bedroom. One double bed which lacked a top sheet was accompanied by a broken light and felt dark and damp as the previous review mentioned.The bathroom was less than desirable. Hairs from a previous shave covered the sink while cobwebs and gigantic spiders were in every corner. Due to water conservation there was a sign saying "we never flush for number one". We are pretty easy going travellers but do like general cleanliness and the opportunity to shower and feel comfortable in our accomodation. Gentle negative feedback was viewed as a reprimand and a very unfriendly email awaited us at home. Would not go back.

Suzanna and Giff let one room in their house for bed and breakfast - the Green Room. Their house is really unusual, set back in the forest with lots of curved walls and full of art and ceramics. The Green Room is upstairs, with windows in a curved wall and the bathroom is separate just down the hall. The room is a good size and has a rustic feel, with a very high wooden bed that is a standard double size. There is no TV or hairdryer and you have to be relaxed about a few cobwebs in the room. As the house is in the forest, it can feel abit dark and as the weather was so wet before and during our stay, the room felt a bit damp. Like everywhere on Hornby, water is in short supply, so you are asked to be careful with it and only use what you really need. Suzanna and Giff are very friendly and welcoming and are happy to chat about Hornby over breakfast in their kitchen. The food at breakfast was fresh and cooked as we waited and included fruit and nice home made preserves. The B&B is in a good location, just a short drive from places to eat and great beaches.

This is a typical Hornby Island home - rustic and laid back with friendly hosts. It is very good value for money but will not suit anyone looking for a luxury holiday.
