Did not get the best weather with a blustery East wind but the accommodation, reception, location and breakfasts made up for it. Room was compact (late booking) but was clean and well appointed. Bed was comfortable (!) And shower delightful. Great value.

What a great experience with a friendly welcome and excellent service at the guest house. Our room was upstairs, lovely with a king size bed and beautiful sea view. Lovely fresh fruit, croissants and mouthwatering omelette for breakfast - all made with love. Beautiful garden and swimming pool, modern and affordable Thank you Celeste and staff for a memorable weekend...

Having breakfast on the balcony does not get better! Great location and Celeste went the extra mile. Centrally located, beach across the road and secure off-street parking. Private pool with sun loungers. We will be back when next in PE.
