Room was quiet and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent as well, and all the staff members were extremely friendly. Great location, only about a five to ten minute walk from everything.

Lovely place. The owners are amazing and nothing was ever a problem. Lovely modern rooms and breakfast absolutely yummy. The hotel is on a hill but is not very steep and is close to the town. Opposite is a lovely Green area which is ideal for dogs. Will definitely be returning. Thank you

Just got back from a 2 night stay at this hotel and from arriving in the car park we immediately felt welcome by the owners. They allowed us to check in 3 hours early and were friendly throughout the stay. The hotel is in an excellent location just a 5 min walk to the harbour. The hotel room was clean... More

Checked in 30th April for 3 nights. The couple who run it are fantastic nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms are of a high standard and breakfast was lovely.

We found the proprieters Carole,gordon and Audrey to be very welcoming and pleasant. From arrival until departure they couldn't do more for us. The room was exceptionally clean and the breakfasts were very filling and tasty with plenty of variety. The restaurants and attractions including the bay as described just a few minutes walk away. We will be staying again.

a last minute booking but a lasting memory just a stones throw from the quay, shops and nightlife, but far enough away not to be noisy. This little hotel is perfect. The room was comfy, clean and had everything you need, the breakfast 10/10. The owners are lovely and the owners mum a treasure. Thank you for a great stay... More
