5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Our stay was early December and we had a great holiday. The staff are very efficient and approachable with nothing being too much trouble. The room was very comfortable with a fabulous view of the sea - we saw beautiful sunsets from there. There are any many good restaurants only a short taxi ride away.

This was our third year at the house. It is always even better than I remember it. The staff,all of them,are so kind and helpful. They should all carry on doing what they do beautifully. The rooms are always clean and very comfortable.

As regular visitors to the house we have seen some noticeable improvements since our last visit three years ago.The service by the ambassadors has always been good but is now excellent. The management are more evident and interested in the hotels performance. Beach service, spacing of sun beds and housekeeping have all improved(though never bad before!) The atmosphere is relaxed,...

We stayed in The House over 18-25 Feb for our wedding anniversary and were initially concerned as some of the more recent reviews were a little mixed. On reflection whereas i can appreciate to some degree the concerns expressed the decoration could be refreshed etc overall from our experience they can be set aside. Its a 5* B+B with dinning...

The service took place on the beach, we then had a cocktail party with a steel drummer then dinner on the beach, all of which was of the... More

Stayed here for a few nights for our wedding anniversary. Great staff. Great property. Afternoon tea was very well done. The included breakfast was great. Location us good. Rooms were not quite as plush as I would expect for a $1000+ a night hotel. We would go again.

We had a fantastic time staying at The House. Everything was perfect. The food, the service, the beach and the rooms. All staff were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of lovely touches ranging from high tea to the cleaning of your sunglasses. The location is close to all the great restaurants. The private beach was superb.... More

As a couple this hotel has everything we need, we like small boutique hotels, which I feel have a more personal feel and you certainly get this here. With I think only 37 rooms this is perfect, plus the bonus of no children, Adults only Our room was an ocean front suite, two large bathrooms, sitting room king size bed,... More
