Very nice little hotel with a lovely atmosphere We stayed in room 8 which was a comfortable cosy room. The staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. If you are going to Gunwharf I would recommend a taxi ( around £5) I would recommend this hotel as good value for money with great customer service

Room 2 was a perfect lovely little double room for me and my fiance, we stayed for our anniversary and the bed, bathroom and extras were all lovely, it was so comfortable and cosy. Breakfast in the morning was tasty and service was quick. We really enjoyed our stay and definitely plan to come again! Thanks :)

Me and my boyfriend came down for a night's stay before going to gunwarf quays. We were in Room 6 which was lovely large room with a great double shower.

The four that's worth a five, in fact more than a five but the system isn't geared up for it. A Boutique in a class of its own offering a mix of contemporary and old décor. The breakfast is the best bar none in my experience, loads of choice, be it a farmers, businessman, trawler man or monks choice you... More

This is a fairly typical boutique hotel, so in its favour is well equipped and tidy rooms and good value for money. The choice for breakfast is very good. Against it is tight parking outside, a very small and atmosphere free bar and minimal staff – I only saw one person there front of house at any one time, and... More
