Good Hotel Guide Review

On the outskirts of a historic seaport town, Pam Mulhaire’s friendly B&B, in a double-fronted Victorian house, stands in a garden with cheerful displays of magnolias, azaleas and camellias in spring. Guests are welcomed with hot drinks and home-baked scones in the traditionally furnished drawing room, where a fire is lit in cool weather. Spacious, high-ceilinged bedrooms are fittingly furnished with period pieces, and provided with terry cloth robes and high-end toiletries. Mornings start at a shared mahogany table with a generous breakfast including seasonal fruits, preserves and home-baked brown bread. Helpful and informative, the hostess has plenty of advice on exploring the town and surrounds. 1 mile W of town; 3 mins’ drive from Rushbrooke railway station.

Guest comments

'Very comfortable bed and breakfast in large early Victorian house; beautiful room overlooking the gardens and across to the sea, with impressive power shower en-suite. We were welcomed with homemade scones and tea by Pam Mulhaire, who has a wealth of knowledge as to the best places to eat, see, etc. Breakfast was delicious with muesli, fruit compotes, cheese, home baked breads and scones and full Irish breakfast, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. ' - Christopher and Sheila Richards - October, 2009
