Called here for dinner following a friend's recommendation. They were not wrong!! We had a really lovely experience, seated with a lovely outlook, good service and excellent food. What more could you ask? This has now become a definite rebook spot. Highly recommend.

We arrived after a long day of driving, and immediately laid down for a quick nap before dinner. The first thing I noticed was that our room was right above the dumbwaiter, which shakes the whole room every time its operated. This made it nearly impossible to sleep until 11pm, which is when dinner stops being served. This was followed... More

Myself and a friend stayed here in July for 3 nights. It is a lovely location - right beside a very beautiful beach. We had two rooms. They are not big rooms but they were really comfortable and clean. The building is decorated in a beach house style - blues and whites - very in keeping with its surroundings. It... More

Very impressed with this restaurant. We had always planned a visit but they have limited opening hours during the winter so it hadn't quite happened. We got 3 courses and they were absolutely fantastic, I got seabass and my wife a steak, the quality and presentation of both were absolutely top notch. The view of the sun setting over the... More

Beautiful location right on the beach. Most rooms seem to have a sea view but ask for one when you book. Rooms are quiet well decorated, not serviced everyday but ask for clean towels. There is free wifi but not great signal in rooms. Breakfast choices are good, lots of cooked options.If you want to eat at the restaurant in... More
