Lovely location on the esplanade, outside the town centre. Nice sea view from my room, which was clean and comfortable. Lucy was very friendly. Good breakfast, too. Blackout curtains would be helpful for me :-)

We stayed here over easter in room 10. The room shown on the web site was not the room we got. The bed was really low on the ground and so uncomfortable, the cushions had stains on them and smelt. The bathroom needed cleaning and the tap had no lever to turn it. The kettle didnt fit under the tap...

As someone who normally stays in more main stream hotels I wasn't sure what to expect from this guesthouse But If the Waverley is an example of what to expect , I am a complete convert , from the quirky welcoming greeting to all the thought out extras in the room, it was nothing short of fabulous Would highly recommend

The guesthouse has a 4 star rating it should be 1 star. We arrived in the middle of the night after a full day out and could not have a shower...

Pros: Good location right on sea front. Bus stop close by. Shops and restaurants walking distance. Modernised facilities, nicely decorated. Price reasonable. Cons: Not clean. My room was very dusty and there were many dead flies and spiders stuck on the walls. There were cob webs on corners and light fixtures. Dry stains on the table tops. The outside veranda...

I stayed in this property for one night with my husband and would never stay again. On my way to the property reading the page I had printed from booking.com I realised we had booked a room with a shared bathroom. It was my fault that I had not realised this otherwise I would not have booked it. I checked...
