We enjoyed our stay. As mentioned in other reviews - room was clean but small and very warm. Lovely touch of fresh flowers. The view from the lounge was lovely over the estuary. First night was very quiet but second night when someone was in room above was not so peaceful. Breakfast was good especially salmon wrapped scrambled eggs and...

Our second stay at the Vanner was just as good as the first. Everything is within easy walking distance and you get a free parking permit for the public car parks which saves around £7.50 a night. The bedrooms aren't large but the big plus is the resident's lounge overlooking the sea. As there are only 2 guest bedrooms there...

The hotel only has two guest bedrooms and the one we stayed in was quite small and very hot. I found that it was a bit on the expensive side,but nice enough. The breakfast was beautiful. In the hallway there was a smell of damp which I believe was coming from the basement

We are a family run B&B operating in our home built in around 1829 so the rooms are not hotel size. We have not been told of any smell of damp before and cannot detect anything now. We try to present different breakfast choices including laverbread sausages, baked eggs and smoke salmon parcels together with our own made bread and...

Stunning location right on the sea front. No parking onsite and limited on-street parking close by. However, we were given a free permit to park in a large carpark nearby which was most welcome. Friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts. Guest lounge with fab sea views, tv and games. Our rooms were on the small side but very comfortable with lovely...

Having cycled 100 miles I was given a very warm welcome from John. The room was very comfortable with the usual in-room facilities. My bike was kept in a safe and dry store room. Breakfast was superb with a great view of the estuary. I recommend the home made Glamorgan sausages; delicious! I would definitely stay there again next time...

Perfect view of the bay and very welcoming and accommodating owners. My partner has a restricted diet and was kindly offered a breakfast to suit his needs perfectly. The room was clean and comfortable, at the back of the house so no view from there. There is a guest lounge and both this and the dining room have lovely views...
