A great B&B, Helen sent a text message to check arrival time and I had a lovely welcome. Room clean, warm or cool (depending if you want a nice big window open- I did) and fantastic breakfast! Lots of parking outside. I would highly recommend. They even have a tapas and deli bar although I have not used it.

My friend and I had lunch here and we're very surprised with the excellent quality and service. The young male waiter was extremely pleasant and very helpful explaining the menu etc. We enjoyed our lunch and will definitely return to try the tapas. Recommend a visit for lunch or early evening snacks.

I spent a couple of days at this property. It was at short notice but I found a nice, clean comfortable place which exceeded my expectations. The place is well kept even though an upgrading project is underway and in no way did it hinder the guests. The breakfast served is of the highest quality and more than sufficient to...

Together with my wife and her mother, we spent a lovely 3 days here, for a family reunion in town. Our two rooms (5 and 6) were clean, decently equipped, comfortable, and with stunning views over Barry. Breakfasts were excellent, and very-freshly cooked, and our family trio of hosts were friendly and helpful. There is a small bar to unwind...
