Exceptional 10.0
The Southern Belle is a beautiful place to stay, so near the sea. The rooms are chic and very comfortable, spotlessly clean. There is no air conditioning, but we had a lovely powerful fan. The staff were so welcoming and the bar downstairs is the perfect place for a nightcap.
Alasdair, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
The pub is great with a brilliant atmosphere. New rooms are very lovely. We had an old one. Bit smelly, sheets had a few stains on and in need of some TLC but I understand this is the next project. Great location and friendly staff. Breakfast Christmas day wasn't great but improved on boxing day.
