Couldn't be better plus Tricia and John couldn't be nicer. John even ferried us and our luggage to the Lundy boat at an awfully early hour. Just looking at the choices for breakfast gives an idea of the calibre of the accommodation.

Beautiful building, lovely room, stunning sea view, outstanding hosts, amazing breakfasts! When we booked, Tricia emailed us lots of information about the area from things to do, places to see and where to eat - we couldn't ask for more...we would definitely stay again

A comfortable room with a lovely sea view, for a short stay. I would pick a larger room with a less cramped ensuite for a longer stay. The breakfast was very good as mentioned on other reviews. The owners were out when we arrived but we had good instructions to both find the address and enter the accommodation without any...

Brilliant service & excellent breakfast 😄 We stayed for just the Saturday night 11th February & although the town was dead, we loved our stay. The only slight drawback was the steep driveway, if you don't mind scraping your bumper!! Fantastic & good old fashioned service, thank you.

Gabriel house was just perfect in nearly all aspects. Double room with sea view is a must. There is a room with four poster but that did not have the sea view. So bear that in mind 'cos you will want to visit here! The room was tastefully decorated throughout. Not in a modern style, definitely period, but very fresh....

Stayed here for an overnight business stay. Nice friendly welcome and the hearty breakfast is fabulous. Room I stayed in was spacious and had a sea view. It's old fashioned but has character and en suite was very modern and functional. Free wi go too. Overall, great location and nice place to stay.

Lovely welcoming place to stay and great breakfast. It was right on the seafront with private parking. The room was very good with interesting books and decor, the bed was very comfortable. It was a birthday surprise for my wife and she enjoyed it very much so.
