These rooms are at the rear of a sushi bar and restaurant in the heart of Torfino. §ome of the rooms have full waterfront views others partial views. The rooms themselves are comfortable and spacious and decorated in a quirky style. We had a room with partial sea views and a balcony and the sea breeze kept us comfortable when... More

Expected quite a bit from this place for the price but arrived to find our room had not been properly serviced; half empty wine glasses on table and in fridge, full ashtray on balcony and food in fridge from previous guests.Put us off eating downstairs. Room service on second morning consisted of emptying the bin only. No lock on balcony... More

Sushi was delicious and enjoyed it with hubby and granddaughter Lexus from the Oceanside patio overlooking the harbour, watching planes arriving and departing as well as the boats coming and going. Was some of the freshest tastiest sushi we've had. Gerry John & Lexus

We stayed at this hotel with last minute reservations and the lady at the front desk was very nice, don't expect too much as it is an older but comfortable inn. I wish I had tried the onsite sushi restaurant but did not get a chance. I did however enjoy a couple drinks with a very nice couple from Scotland... More

We stayed for two nights in April 2015. Our room reeked of deep fryer from the sushi restaurant downstairs. We had to sleep with our balcony door open, which made for a freezing couple of nights. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was big, but the price just did not reflect the nature of the accommodation. It was way... More

We spent 3 days here in August, 2014 and really enjoyed ourselves. It is a bit pricey for the smallness of the rooms, but it is lovely and romantic and the view is priceless, both in the morning when the sun is coming up and at night when it sets over the ocean. Not for everyone as this is a... More

The location of this hotel is wonderful. The rooms have gorgeous views and it's walking distance to everything in town. The inn is charming and historic. However, the staff is quite disorganized. They messed up my reservation, so I had to move rooms midway through my stay. I was told I would receive a discount for the hassle. Come checkout... More

Overpriced stay in Room 5. Not worth the extra money for the view. No night stand or reading light. Refrigerator is very noisy. The whole place smells of old cooking oil and is crammed with junk. Definitely would not stay there again.

we got referred go the place by the tourist office. The site is just gorgious and the house with its old bricks just unique and picturesque. We recommend the rooms upstairs facing the ocean. The balconeys are small but cosy. Watch incoming boats and the waterairplanes. The room (Nr.5) has wonderful windows and a great bathroom. The bed was new... More
