    The owners of this B&B were incredibly friendly and welcoming, and really made the effort to accommodate all our needs (e.g. the other half missed breakfast so they made a bacon sarnie for me to take him!). Location-wise it's perfect as the seafront is right there in front of you, and the town centre, shops and pier are just a...

Our room had a stunning view out over the boardwalk and sea front and, coming from Australia, it was great to be so close to the beach - almost felt like home. The family that run the house are lovely and could...

    Can't fault this beautiful bed and breakfast, due to traffic jams on motorways we arrived later than expected but received a very warm and friendly welcome. We were shown to our room which was stunning, we were lucky enough to be able to book this beautiful room overlooking the sea with the added joy of a balcony where you could...

    We were very pleased with the warm welcome and shown a lovely clean room. On the sea front, and within easy walking distance to the pier and town centre, along with plenty of free on street parking! The owners are very helpful and provide an excellent breakfast!! We would strongly recommend The Boat House to anyone looking for comfortable accommodation!!!

    We booked the Boathouse for a one night stay as attending a wedding in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to be told we'd been moved the Grand Balcony room which appears to be the best and biggest room there. We found it to be comfortable, clean, bright and spacious. The owners seemed very relaxed and friendly. And the breakfast...
