A one night stopover while motorcycling around the Southern coastal roads of the UK. Bikes safely parked off the road overnight. Clean, friendly, very accommodating, a comfortable bed in a quiet rear room. Heather, the proprietor, was warm and had time for a chat after a long day in the saddle. A shortish stroll down to the sea front of...

Had an overnight stay here. The owner, Heather was lovely and welcoming, the place was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We had a great breakfast and couldn't have asked for more...The guest house is situated a 15 min walk from the town and its amenities so is ideal.

Thanks very much Heather for a lovely stay, we'd return tomorrow if we could, and Poppy is so very sweet! What we really appreciated was the cleanliness, service with a smile, and a beautiful town in sunlight

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strathmore is a 4* AA Gold Awarded Licenced Victorian Guest House. With 8 individually designed bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. We are located just a 10 minute stroll to the town centre and not much further to the sea front. Strathmore is lovingly looked after and still retains some of the origional features. I cater for singles, couples and families alike, with small well behaved dogs also welcome (charges may apply). Should the weather allow, there is a selcuded terraced garden to the rear of the property, where guests can relax. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to Strathmore at some point in the future. Heather ... more   less
