Guest Book Comments

  • "Excellent in terms of the things that really matter. A great location minutes from the beach, lovely walks and Dimbola museum. A very warm and helpful welcome, a very comfortable bed and everywhere was spotless and gleaming. Breakfast was excellent with every ingredient clearly chosen for quality. Social distancing was well thought through and we felt very safe. Lovely people doing a great job under difficult circumstances" Deborah, July 2020
  • "Paul was a superb host and couldn't have done any more to make the stay more comfortable and enjoyable. Quick response on bookings and generally keeping in touch about food options and updated rules for Covid etc. My room and bathroom were immaculate and the bed very comfortable. Location of the B&B is excellent with easy access to the beach and Downs for a run. Parking was busy but found a spot after a couple of laps." Jim, July 2020
