Perfect Little Seafront Guesthouse!
Lauren and Mark were very hospitable, right from the beginning they couldn’t do enough for us. Everything was thoughtful and well presented. Location is amazing! The breakfast was just perfect! Thank you so much! Hopefully we’ll visit again soon - but with better weather!

Excellent service, excellent guest house
Absolutely immaculate guest house, we were very warmly welcomed by Lauren who complied with all covid rules, mask wearing sanitizer easily located, door keys in own sterilized bag. We were shown our lovely room which was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated, the bed was very comfortable and slept very well, we recieved a lovely breakfast hamper in the morning with the name of our room stitched on the hamper which was a lovely touch, there was plentiful food with warm croissants and pastries, eggs, orange juice. The little attention to detail was lovely. The house is in perfect location facing the sea and beach a mile stroll into the town centre, there are couple beach restaurants serving lovely fish dishes and the camelia hotel which is a must! The food is amazing. On our last day mark the owner said he would cook us a breakfast for our journey home which we were very grateful for, nothing was too much trouble for this lovely welcoming family and we will certainly return here no question.

The perfect find! The hosts were so helpful and friendly. The breakfast delivered by hamper to the room was nothing short of wow! Sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and eating breakfast was simply perfect. Free parking around the back was ideal. The hygiene precautions in place were exceptional. The only downside was a very warm room but there is a fan which helped. Thank you all
