Great weekend retreat

The lively host, the super comfortable bed and the close proximity to the beach and main strip.
Lovely overnight stay. Very cozy and homely. Owner is very friendly and generous with advice. The property has lovely gardens and is located near all the main attractions. The room and bed were very comfortable. A great little hideaway for a weekend with a loved one.

Couldn't have asked for more

Location, cleanliness, comfortable room
Genesta House B&B is run by the lovely Susan who was an impeccable host. We stayed for one night and we couldn't have asked for more! The B&B is situated on a quiet street with other hotels/apartments. There was plenty of (free) street parking. The main promenade of shops and restaurants along the seafront/ pier were just a 5 min walk away. Top attractions like the Penguin Parade and The Nobbies were a mere 15 min drive away. Rooms were cosy and clean, with good heating.

Comfortable, welcoming place to stay.

Attentive, friendly staff. Attention to detail. Beautiful surroundings.
We stayed one night. The lady was lovely and very attentive. There were chocolates and a bottle of port in our room, which was beautiful and homely. The upkeep was amazing, the gardens gorgeous, and the breakfast room had a beautiful view over the courtyard. Would definitely recommend.

Truely a welcoming and relaxing B&B

Friendly and welcoming Hotel Owner. Delicious Breakfast and the gorgeous garden
It was one of the better B&B I've stayed in. The owner was most welcoming and the room was comfy and a little romantic.

Reviews prove themselves

Hospitality, comfort and facilities
After a long haul flight from the UK an early check in was supplemented by an upgrade! Some great local advise was offered and enhanced our brief stay immensely. Would stay here again without hesitation given the opportunity

Relaxing, peaceful

The garden and setting in general
We went away because we both needed a break from responsibilities and duties. We were not a couple just long time friends and Genesta gave us the opportunities to relax. We did not fit into any of your traveller types
