Lots of character, good breakfast
Beautiful, comfortable room Warm, friendly hosts Superb cooked breakfast
Stayed in an extra spacious luxury room on the first floor. Great views from bay window, X large king bed, two comfortable chairs, large flat screen TV, minibar (with wine glasses inside), quality toiletries, gowns, slippers, Jacuzzi bath. Excellent breakfast. Found easy parking close by on street. Lovely hosts who have thought of everything.
Nothing at all
I booked on the morning of the evening I wanted to arrive. There was an easy, nothing too much trouble air about everything. I was tired when arrived, a lovely hot shower and a bed that seemed to envelope me off to a deep sleep until the next morning. My 'small' scrambled eggs on toast kept me going until tea time and the owners were there if you wanted a bit of conversation over breakfast. Just very easy and relaxed.
Unable to stay as my room was double booked. Had to find alternative accommodation due to incompetent booking system and poor customer service.
Central location, minutes walk to harbour and good restaurants.Friendly atmosphere and helpful advice. Delicious, freshly cooked breakfast. Comfortable beds and choice of bedding and pillows. Fully recommend the restaurant downstairs, The Olive Room, for an outstanding evening meal.
In twin-bedded room not much storage space if staying for more than a couple of nights.
Huge, beautiful room with amazing views over harbour. Very friendly and helpful owner and staff. Delicious cooked breakfast, perfect after a heavy night out!
Room size & luxury right down to the bath accompaniments. The restaurant below is a gem.
Paul and his good lady were genuine and friendly. They gave lots of first hand knowledge of the walks, restaurants and parking. The breakfast was First Class and the atmosphere was relaxing. Just be mindful if you're not good with lots of stairs and if you'd like to use the attached restaurant for your evening meal please book before you arrive. The restaurant is very high quality bistro style but competitively priced. Highly recommended.
Parking. Just make sure you park in the right car park to avoid a penalty. Paul will help with this.
Clean comfy room. Great Shower! Great friendly service, excellent breakfast.
A warm and friendly welcome that greets you and leads you to the stylish and elegant rooms, can't wait to bring my wife for a long weekend!!!

Gull noise, car parking a bit of a walk.
We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived, there had been a mix-up with a restaurant we'd booked so the proprietor very kindly found us a table at a lovely fish restaurant nearby. As it was already 8.15pm, and most of the restaurants were fully booked, we were very grateful. We also liked our room, with very comfortable twin beds and a lovely wet/shower room. The breakfast was exceptional, really good quality and nicely cooked, presented and served, it couldn't have been better. The proprietors (sorry can't remember your names!) were really friendly and helpful.
everything was perfect.
Excellent guest house in a perfect location. Breakfast was particularly fantastic!

Had to leave
Really nice place.great overnight stop.
nice people, good food, nice bedroom/bathroom and breakfast room
a little bit hard to find, and almost impossible to park outside even to drop off luggage! parking within a few minutes walk though.
Travelling alone is always daunting, but I need not have worried. Very friendly welcome from Carol and she and Paul were always there to chat to after breakfast, which had to be one of the best I have ever been served.
