I don't know where to start! The owners are fantastic, Mr Rook has such a great sense of humour! The view is breathtaking, it is priceless to be able to wake up and see this beautiful port from your bed! The room is really nice and decorated in a marine style, with a great shower, and all the facilities you...

Unloading is very difficult at this hotel. I parked opposite on double yellow lines, as advised, on a very busy road to unload then carried the luggage up steep steps to get to the front of the hotel. When I booked the hotel it wasn't made at all clear that the reserved car parking is actually off site. On arrival...

A lovely little gem! Very near to the station, a fantastic view of the harbour, immaculate and clean. Breakfast is lovely, lots of choice and cooked to perfection. The hosts are lovely and Ron Rook is a real character. This B&B just needs to keep doing what it does best. Been here 3 times now and will definitely return.

We stayed here for the second time in under a year, as the location is absolutely top class! A little on the expensive side, but when you see the views, all is forgiven. Charismatic and friendly hosts who make you feel very welcome and have a great deal of knowledge to boot! Our room was well equipped and all the...
