Lovely Stay We spend one night at Gilcrest Place after a lovely lunch at Wolfgat, lovely warm welcome, rooms were nice and clean with some welcoming sherry waiting in the chilly weather. Overlooks the beach which is an easy stroll to get to as is the waterfront. thank you

#CD travel I will definitely revisit Gilcrest Place. The room was beautifully decorated. Coffee Station of high quality, comfortable seating area, mini fridge well stocked and the bouquet options on the TV extensive. Lovely garden with great sea views.

Recent wonderful stay Everything a couple seeking a peaceful unwind could wish for. Our host and hostess did everything and more than we asked for. We had trouble booking good restaurants on line - they did it for us. The picnic dinner on our romantic balcony was a never-to-be-forgotten experience.
