We stayed here for a week last year and decided to stay for ten days this year. The staff were all excellent and most speak English very well if you make the effort to talk to them. Our room was an inside room overlooking a patio but we only used the hotel as base so if you intend to spend... More

Some words of your nice review interested us in particular : "The staff....speak english very well if you make the effort to talk to them". It's a pleasure for us to talk with our guests, as far as our knowledge of a foreign language enables it ; however we try not to be invasive, but quite helpful to their needs.... More

We were a group of 7. We had two twin rooms with balcony and port view, one triple with no view. The triple room and bath were very nice although a bit small for 3. There was no mirror and the closet and shelves were in an awkward location and there was no enough space to spread 3 suitcases. On... More

I stayed 16th September, with a friend, for a week. We had single rooms on separate floors, not a problem. The rooms were a reasonable size, mine had a balcony looking onto an inner courtyard and opposite other rooms, albeit with no balconies. My friend didn't have a balcony, but a window which opened on to the courtyard. Her room... More

This is a perfect, professional and detailed review, and we are sure it could help many people in their hotel's choice. We are sorry, but it is impossible for us to answer it subject by subject: we do not like our guests could say we spend all our time in front of the computer....Have a nice time.

Lovely hotel, good clean room in the centre of the hotel, had a shared balcony overlooking a courtyard below, it was lovely and quiet. The hotel was very very clean, the staff helpful and polite. It was ideally situated right in front of the "Little harbour" and right by the lovely family orientated night-life. Cannot rate the location of this... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room opened onto a large, albeit shared, lovely terrace, an ideal place to sit with a drink and watch the world go by. The building has character and the situation right on the inlet harbour cannot be faulted. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. But a word of warning, don't expect the... More

In our opinion, you have really understood the meaning of choosing an hotel in the middle of a town. Even if it is situated in the pedestrian area, there is the noise of people who stroll in the streets and that of public places, above all during the summer season and the week ends. That means an aware choice :... More

This is a delightful, small hotel, with an exceptional location. Many rooms have balconies (ask for one) and you'll have a splendid view of the inner harbor. The breakfast was very good, and the folks at the front desk gave accurate and helpful information- We were a group of 10 and had a great experience. A recommendation- take the ferry... More

Stayed one night in May and wished I had booked for longer, we had a harbour view which lead out to the most delightful terrace, the owner of the hotel could not have been more helpful... Great rooms with everything you need, lovely breakfast area...I would recommend this hotel to all.
