Deceiving from the outside but well appointed inside. Great care by Gary O'Connor, proprietor, both in welcoming us and attending to our needs. After a day's ride on motorcycles and a hike to down to the coast along the way, my friend had acquired a tick on the hike. After seeking assistance from numerous guests, including the pharmacy across the... More

This place is NOT what is advertised. We should of seen the writing on the wall when we arrived to a note on the window saying "return at 3". When we arrived we found out that not one thing was open inside the inn, the restraint, the bar, nothing. We were checked in and told to leave the keys on... More

We did not stay at the Inn, as we had rented a house near the harbour but we dined there when we could. The food was truly outstanding. We kind of expected standard pub fare, but were pleasantly surprised, all the food was freshly prepared: home-made ravioli, aubergine soup, a dish of chana daahl and home-made blueberry bread pudding ,...

Upon arrival the hotel restaurant and bar were both shut and there were no other guests so it did feel a bit lifeless. Whilst the room we were in was spotlessly clean the bathroom was tiny and shower had seen better days. It was OK and there was free wifi so all in all would recommend.

Upon arrival, we realized that the stairs were too steep for us to carry our baggage: It was heavy and we had lots. We are two females. So, the owners graciously allowed us to cancel our two-night contract without any penalty. As the owners were out of town, Eileen was taking over for them, she was of great help in... More

We stayed here in 2009, when the inn was just being renovated. We were looking forward to returning in order to see what improvements had been made. We were pretty disappointed with the results. We stayed in the same room as before, I think, #6. The only change that had been made was a new wood floor, which was not... More

We rode into town at 8.00pm on a Sunday evening in April. Everything else was closed, and we ended up at The Loyalist. The kitchen was already closed, but the owner offered to cook us a couple of steaks. They were absolutely delicious, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We met and chatted with a couple of locals... More

I looked at a few places to stay online and finally decided on this small hotel due to offseason closure of some of the b&b's in the area. I am glad I decided to stay there. I made my res online and found when I arrived that I got an upgrade to a room with a queen bed. The room... More
