Amazing B&B
We arrived here early and although we couldn't check in we were made fresh coffee and sherry while we waited by the lovely staff. The room was lovely and had a lovely view looking out across the ocean. Breakfast was amazing! Highly recommend!

Simply the best
This guest house was outstanding because of its attention to detail. The room was beautiful with a chocolate on each pillow. The breakfast, which was cooked fresh, was simply outstanding with all food kept covered until it was placed in front of you. The service by the staff was exemplary. Even though there were steps up to the property, our luggage was carried both up and down for us. We couldn't have asked for more. If you're in this area please don't miss the opportunity to stay here.
