5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Exactly as a guest house should be!
We were incredibly lucky to be the only guests for the time we stayed. I am sure the service would have been great with more people there too but, with only us it would have been easy to let it slip. Instead, we were literally waited on at breakfast, chatted with, had the guest lounge to ourselves and our 2 year old daughter even went off and played with the family's children. The room was clearly newly decorated, had plenty of space and was a nice place to be. O ly downsides were it was a little cold at times and for me, the bed was soft but that is more my problem than theirs! Overall, a fabulous stay, a lovely part of the world a d we will definitely look to use them again when we are back in that neck of the woods!

Lovely stay
We had a lovely two nights here. We were offered (and accepted) tea and felt welcomed into a family home - almost like friends. The packed lunch (for a small fee) was also really useful to have and saved us having to go looking for a cafe/shop. The accommodation is so close to the water and you get great views of the hills round about - when it's clear enough to see them, of course! ;)
