Perfect Beach Location

Booked this guest house based on reading reviews online. It was a locely place and so close to the sea. The 2 owner Billy and John were very welcoming. We had the ground floor room which was nice. The only downside is that someone at 3.30am in the morning must have lost their keys and kept ringing the bell, and then decided to knock on our bedroom window and we were so tired the next day. However, the room was a nice size, and meant no stairs to contend with. Had a mini fridge too which was great. Would definitely recommend this guest house.

Really friendly host, room was clean and tidy, shower and bathroom was clean and all really well kept- would definitely come again. Wifi was good, fab location (10/15 min walk into town). Accessible and was able to get into the house (locked all day everyday-entered each time with keys) whenever and door was lockable as well. Really great service, loved our stay.

Very good 8.0
Lovely guest house and host
A lovely guest house 2 minute walk to the beach, very good location. John our host was brilliant nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and comfortable bed. Our room was next to the front door which I would have preferred at the back of the house as you can hear people coming in and out. Other than that highly recommended. Due to Covid they don’t come into your room at all so if you need more towels, sheets etc just ask. Thanks for a lovely stay.

a great stay
Colson House is a great place to stay for the weekend. John has recently refurbed the place to a high spec and all the little touches make the place feel like home. It’s located down a nice street and a stones throw from the beach, pubs and restaurants. Well worth a visit!

Excellent & friendly
Well located, clean and well proportioned room complimented with nice decor. We stayed in the 4-poster room which was also quiet with very little to be heard from the outside. Good value for money and would stay again
