Sea view

Excellent sea views food was lovely .The top floor room we stayed in was very nice albeit could prove a struggle for older patrons and disabled as there is no lift.Also parking is a bit of a nightmare.

Great getaway

The Olive Branch was a great find, Paul and Carol were great hosts, nothing was to much trouble, room was amazing with a new oversized shower,4ft bed instead of the normal 2ft 6", breakfast was the best I have had.

Well done to you both.

Nice place, very friendly, but they only served breakfast 8am till 9am, I think if you are having a relaxing break for a day or two you don't want to get up earlier than you would normally, I wouldn't stay again just because of this reason, most places serve breakfast till at least 10.30am, it's as though they don't really want to to breakfast,

The Olive Branch

I only stayed at The Olive Branch for one night but would definitely like to have stayed longer.

The room was lovely and the owners - Paul and Carol - were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

lovely break, great accomodation!

wanted a couple of nights away somewhere quiet, this place fitted the bill.

Stayed in one of the larger rooms, it was fantastic. the bed is huge, room massive, view is splendid. Breakfast was very good, would reccomend the olive room as it is in a good location.

Felt like a home away from home.

Run by a lovely couple who make you feel so welcome. Great location and lovely big clean room.
