We thought the hotel was excellent. The location made the views outstanding from the beautiful garden and we got such a lot of pleasure sitting relaxing on the deck with a lovely lunch.

You are greeted with a warm welcome by Ann and Bob, the rooms are recently updated for a clean modern look. An excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. An ideal location to get around the island. Can't wait to return

Bob and Anne are fabulous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The food was fresh and delicious. The bar is well stocked. The view and outdoor seating adds to the charm. I would recommend this accommodation to all. Very good value for money.
