Absolutely the best B and B we've stayed out. Gay is a wonderful, helpful, friendly hostess who warmly welcomed the four of us. Massive beautifully presented breakfast and large bedrooms full of goodies like fruit, wine, chocolates and fresh flowers. Pleasantly located and each room has sweeping views. Without doubt all of us were spoilt and were wishing we could...

A great spot in Riverton with wonderful views across the river and out to sea. A wonderfully helpful host who is very attentive to your needs. I was in the sea view room, very spacious, wonderful bed and some nice treats in the fridge to greet you at the end of your days travels.

I stayed here for two nights. It was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable, just right for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious with a great variety of homemade food which would put many hotels to shame! There were little treats to deal with an attack of the midnight munchies. Beautiful views of the river and sea!
