Great place to break away and retreat as a couple. Comfortable, private and secure. Amazing continental buffet with fresh fruit and meats combined with a massive full english hot breakfast. Close to beach and within walking distance of Chartwell Road (a hub of restaurants and nightlife). Host was warm and welcoming. Would definitely return here soon

Over priced for what you get. Bathroom is just bigger than double cupboard. You cannot open the shower door (opens onto the sink) and have the bathroom door closed at the same time without a squeeze between the sink and the closed bathroom door. No place to hang your towel to dry, unless you hang it directly above the toilet in the bathroom. Broken bathroom accessories left lying around the bathroom. Quite noisy, although there are proper walls you can hear the other guests in neighbouring rooms example, flushing toilets, showering, talking, closing bathroom doors, etc. Outside patio pool cushions are dirty, with mildew and they are split open/broken. Honesty bar is over priced. Good breakfast, friendly staff and the rooms are clean.

We arrived early to check in and then went off for the day. We received a warm welcome and shown around our room and the lounge and outside area. The room was clean, well furnished and comfortable. On our return in the evening, we were able to get ice and wine glasses from the honesty bar, no trouble at all. Breakfast was delicious, beautifully presented. We will be back :-) Thank you Janelle for your hospitality.

My heart is back home. .... I just love this place... Peace, tranquility, serenity and a whole lot of awesomeness... Not to mention Sybil.... The best innkeeper by far.... !!! It is by far one of the nicest B&B's I have ever stayed in. It's 4 stars doesn't do Villa Calla justice. My family and I are having a wonderful and relaxing and much needed rejuvenation. Could not have picked a better spot!

A really wonderful place to stay - comfortable room, great breakfast, kind and caring hostess and very convenient location. A real home away from home. Janelle adds so much warmth, is friendly and goes out of her way to help. I highly recommend this fantastic b&b. Will certainly be back
