Walking up the street to this hotel did not prepare us for what was inside! When we were greeted & welcomed into this B&B our breath was literally taken away by the view of the harbour from the sitting room window - we had no idea the harbour was there as it was hidden by the buildings on the street...

Nice boutique rooms. Good breakfast which we had delivered to our room on a silver tray. Great outlook of marina from the rooms. Very attractive caretaker who was very helpful and efficient. Situation good for all the sights and about 15 minutes walk from station.

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights, and it was amazing. The interior is very clean and tidy. All rooms have a ocean view, and great bathroom facilities. The hostess, Maria, was of great help. She assisted us in making plans, showing us restaurants, and generally making us feel welcomes. Some pointers on your stay here: -Enjoy a... More

A really nice B&B run by friendly people. It is clean, well decorated and in a really nice location overlooking the marina. It is however, simple. There is breakfast which you order the evening before and can either have in your room or at one of two little tables at a window looking out over the marina. Breakfast is continental-... More

As often happens, the entrance to this b&b in no way reflected the place itself. You need to carry your baggage up to the first floor but Maria in reception was happy to help. She also spoke excellent English and was able to advise what to see, where to eat etc. we had hoped there would be a shuttle bus... More

Maria and colleagues are just the best! They took care of my family during our 5 night stay from 07-12 April 2013 beyond our expectations.The accommodation is secure and so we felt very safe at all times. Our luggage was delayed and the girls helped with phone calls to help locate and track the progress. The B&B is situated in... More

Staff are very welcoming, and make a special effort to speak English. The double room I stayed in was massive: and the en suite shower room/bathroom was modern and roomy. Very impressed by the decoration of the rooms and the reception area. A lot of work has gone into this b & b. Surprised the rating is 3 star only.... More
