Extremely friendly owner , very welcoming. The room was spotless, nice beds, nice towels and just as I expected/hoped. The only issue I have is with the dogs the owner keeps, there was a very strong smell of dogs on check-in although going upstairs I could not smell them any longer and not when having breakfast. As a dog owner myself I thought it was off-putting, my travel companions (not dog owners) were suggesting finding an alternative hotel. I think the owners try very hard and do a very good job, a very good guest house, I just had this one issue.

Overall I am happy with the place. What I did not like, was the strong bad smell that was in the air. I do not want to comment on that, because it could have been a one-off thing. I only stayed there for 1 night.

Room excellent, apparently newly furnished. Staff welcoming. Good location - short walk to town. Only downside was on-street parking with odd rules, although we were offered a parking permit if required.

Welcome and staff good, but room tiny, stains on carpet, dust everywhere, and decor very tacky. Breakfast was not very nice as hardly any variety for vegetarians and dried apricots every morning very off putting, just a very cheap poor breakfast. Nice to have a little area with microwave, fridge and table. Tariff very expensive for what you got, room was like a shoe box and stains not nice.

Were very sorry to read that you were not satisfied by your stay, but it does seam that you were intent on complaining about any detail, Liking yourself to the four in a bed TV programme contestant. You commented on the size of our room, but you booked our single room, which is just for one person, and photos of this room are on the Expedia pages, this room is extremely popular among many returning guests who love it. Our vegetarian breakfast offer includes a good array of items, Vegetarian Bacon & Sausage, Eggs scrambled, poached or fried, Beans, Tomatoes (tinned or Fresh), Croissant, Yogurt, Fruit, Toast (White or Brown) as well as 5 cereal options, I’m really not sure what else you wanted. I’m sorry we did not meet your standards or expectations; however, it seems odd you said you would be returning next year.

The Moorings is a wonderful B&B located just steps from the ocean. Our hosts, Sarah and Alison, made sure everything was perfect and were never too busy to chat. Breakfast was amazing and they were willing to accommodate any changes we requested. Our daughter lives nearby and we will definitely stay there again.

Property and Owner were perfect. We were surprising family and we did not want them to know we had arrived from the USA. Our host was pleasant and arranged for check in at a time when we were arriving. Food for breakfast was very well cooked and presented and the staff could not be more helpful - even finding us a parking spot on the street when we arrived and advising us of best places to park. Would highly recommend this warm and welcoming home from home. We intend to use them again next year for a family wedding event.
