Stayed for two nights, lovely hosts, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Gorgeous breakfast with lots of choice. Room was spotlessly clean and plenty of room. Lovely touches like biscuits and bottled water really made the difference. Will definitely stay again.

Lovely guest house, friendly owners and the breakfast was very good. Our room was spacious which is hard to find in guest houses these days and close to the park and beach. The owner also gave you local knowledge of things to do and any offers available.

“No tips. I said it could not be improved upon but I was wrong, every time I visit I find something else has either been added or improved - I just don't know how they manage it. Gillian is always thinking of ways to make guests feel more pampered, in my opinion both her and Michael are amazing.”
