Great place to stay if you looking for a friendly and relaxing holliday. Nice and clean rooms, great food and lovely hosts. Near the beach and good connections if you want to use the public transports to get around the island. Looking forward to come back later this year for the third time.

We have been to this hotel three times in five years and we cannot rate it enough. Keith and Christine are the most welcoming of hosts. They are friendly, amusing, hard working and knowledgeable about the islands attractions to offer. You want for nothing in your rooms. Each one is decorated beautifully and has everything you could possibly want -... More

What an AMAZING time we had! First experience of 'The Swiss Cottage' and wish we had found it years ago. A real gem! We stayed for a week in September and have already booked to go for 2 weeks next year. Christine and Keith made us feel like it was home from home and nothing (NOTHING) was too much trouble....

I arrived on the Island to find that the hotel I booked was closed because of bereavement. In desperation I rang the doorbell of Swiss Cottage. Keith could not have been more helpful and welcoming.The room was warm and comfortable, and the food excellent. I will certainly return.

We stayed at Swiss Cottage for 5 days in August 2015 and found a very warm welcome. We were made to feel very much at home and our rooms were most comfortable. The service was excellent at all times. The choice of food for breakfast was very good and varied. We very much hope to return one day soon.

The food was wonderful home cooked and the room was very clean and had everything you could possibly need from drinks to toiletries etc. All you really need to take with you are some clothes, and money for shopping 😊...
