“Have to say me and my partner had a lovely stay in the Kimberley House and were greeted by a nice friendly couple. Our double room was very nice and clean and modern comfortable bed and the shower was nice too, nice view overlooking the harbour and the Abbey, The breakfast is 2nd to none plenty of choices but I recommend the full English (belly busting)… Also, a stone’s throw from the town 5 mins from the harbour well located.
