Liked location, size and amenities. It’s got everything you need. Melissa was lovely and very accomodating. However other guests were loud all night, up and down stairs and opening and closing doors and loud talking. Lounge room needs privacy blinds, can see in at night from outside.

Thank you for your review! I agree we are in such a great spot, right on the marina and in the hustle and bustle of the main street, whilst not being noisy. I'm so glad you loved it - please do come back and visit again! Thanks and kind regards, Georgie

It was nice and secure, plenty of space and close to everything you need. Old fashioned but modern at the same time

I rarely stay in a B&B when travelling, and I have to say, this beautifully renovated B&B has changed my mind. You immediately feel at home just walking through the door. Large bedrooms with gorgeous fireplaces (one in the bathroom too) . Guest lounge and kitchen was fantastic – loved the rum balls that was on tap at all times. Awesome breakfast and outdoor area and gardens beautiful

Thank you for your review. We love that you've become a B&B convert! The fireplaces have been here since the house was built and are a great feature that we love as well. Karen, who makes the rum balls and cakes for the guests is a great cook - I will pass along your message to her. Thanks once again and kind regards, Georgie
