Friendly welcome on arrival. Room very comfortable and well furnished. Very relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast the following morning was excellent. Really good value. Room 8 has great views of the valley toward the town and sea beyond. Pity we only had one night stay. Recommend this accomodation for the freindly welcome and comfortable room.

Beautifully appointed accommodation and more like a hotel than a Bed and Breakfast, with a bar and lots of areas to sit and relax. The owners very helpful and pleasant and go the extra mile to ensure they deliver excellent service. Breakfast excellent too.

Managed to book this last minute. Car park is quite steep from the main road but it means the views are stunning from the building. Impressive entrance hall when you get inside. The room was immaculate. Fresh, clean decor, clean bed. Ours was one if the smaller rooms but plenty of room for us and there's a guest lounge downstairs...

Stunning house, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and loved the choice of different fruits as well as the cooked. Excellent location and wonderful hosts, will be returning. Well worth paying that extra to have a 5* break.

The place looks like it was very recently refurbished and is pristinely clean. Our room was very nice with a comfy bed and a large bathroom. Taxi ride into town is under £5 which is reasonable. Breakfast was good if a little rushed due the 1 hour slot. Service was good and I would be happy to stay there again.
