Great host, helpful with advice for walks. We had a great breakfast, with freshly squeezed orange juice. The hotel has wonderful views and is in a good location for the coast path. Unhesitatingly recommend.

The views from the hotel are spectacular and it is well positioned on the North Walk with easy access to the Valley of the Rocks and the centre of... More

This is a nice hotel with bags of character, as has been said, the views from the rooms are stunning. There are plenty of tea bags supplied in the room which to us is a major plus point as having to ask for extra is not something I enjoy doing. The room had a flat screen tv of acceptable size...

So pleased we picked this hotel to stay last week! Stunning views from our comfortable and squeaky clean bedroom. The highlight here is the home cooked food especially the breakfasts which we looked forward to every day. Best ever scrambled eggs and superb coffee. Everything is served with attention to detail in the attractive dining room overlooking the bay. If... More
