Beautifully maintained guest house with high quality furnishings and decor. The owners are friendly and helpful but not obtrusive. The room was great, as were the breakfasts. Good location for 5 minute stroll to the harbour where the restaurants are and also fab walks along the coast in both directions.

Booked with Fred for our short 2 nights break and mentioned we like a nice view when we are away. He said he'd allocate us room 3 and was true to his word. Our room had a super view of the harbour and village. It was spotlessly clean and a nice touch was being able to enjoy a glass of...

Fred and Maggie are the warmest hosts, very welcoming and accommodating - nothing is too much bother and always with a smile. My room was very basic but clean and fresh with good quality bedlinen. Breakfast was amazing with really different choices available. Everything cooked to perfection and served wonderfully hot. Noted that several guests were habitual returnees. That says...

Wonderful hotel Fred and Maggie are excellent hosts. A very clean and warm hotel although it rained one afternoon we were able to sit in the conservatory and drink coffee and read the magazines, and watch the world go by. Breakfast is excellent not too much and not too little perfectly cooked and served, we will be back.
