The ensuite was small. Being an XXL person i did struggle in the shower. Water pressure was OK. Breakfast was nice, they had Soya milk for my wife,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Jennis Lodge and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would however like to point out to others, that we can provide decaffeinated coffee and various types of tea for the rooms. Baked beans are also readily available for breakfast if that is your preference.... More

We only stayed for the one night, but we were made very welcome . Our room was very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely. We would certainly return for another stay. Next time maybe a little longer to see more of the area. Our dog loved the beach and we found a quaint doggy diner nearby. We would gladly recommend Jennis Lodge... More

Vicci and Paul were just as welcoming as the first time (even carrying our suitcases up the stairs) and the room we stayed in (I think it was the same one as two years ago) was very clean and comfortable.

Fantastic location and nice friendly B&B. Vicci and Paul were both lovely and both the room and the breakfast were excellent. The children were made to feel especially welcome and loved choosing their breakfasts. Plenty of parking right nearby, really handy for the beach. Family room was a double and a bunk bed, surprisingly spacious. We will definitely be visiting... More
