Mrs Carol Williams, UK (31 May 2011)

  • We stayed here on the outward journey and again on the way back, and it was absolutley great, the treatment food and accommodation were first class. To my mind it should be 5* not 4* but unfortunately because they do not offer evening meals it cannot be. But I have already recommended the guest house to several people that were on holiday with us, and to mine and my friends family. WELL DONE - PERFECT

Mr Stuart Dempster, Edinburgh, Scotland (16 March 2009)

Why is this guest house so special? The rooms are very clean, comfortable and the welcome outstanding. Highly recommended and I would not hesitate to book again.

  • Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making us feel so welcome when we came to stay with you last friday evening!! we will definately be wanting to return, To stay at a place where your made to feel so welcome means such a lot, its not so much the rooms people buy, its the people who you stay with you buy the most, cos we would never stay anywhere where the owners were unfriendly. thanks for everything and for the pick up at the airport, thats a great personal touch!!! and made it very convenient for us!!!

Mr Graham Lawson, Sheffield, UK (24 June 2008)

  • Thank you for looking after my family in my hour of need. As you are aware I was taken ill at Gatwick airport in transit to Gibraltar and finished up in your local hospital. You both cared for my family for which I am eternally grateful and we arrived home safely in the private ambulance. We are now planning a week away to Skegness. The room was very nice and accomodating, followed by a hearty breakfast. I shall certainly recommend your guest house to anyone looking for accomodation in your area. Thanks again and best wishes.
