This is a lovely B&B with 5 rooms, mostly around a small courtyard with a small swimming pool. We had the room with large French windows (patio doors) on two sides, so very bright and airy. A lovely comfortable bed and a bathroom with both a large shower and a bath. Apparently Inge usually runs it but was away for... More

This was our second visit to On the Spot and I would recommend it to anyone. Inge makes you extremely welcome. The rooms are immaculate and modern with all the facilities you need. There is a nice sitting/sun bathing area to while away a few hours and the breakfast is excellent.

We were made to feel very welcome here for our 2 night stay. It is a bit out of the way so car is needed. However, a lovely B&B in a superb area. Very much enjoyed our stay and would return. Inge was very helpful in recommending where we should visit and eat.

The rooms are very well maintained, Inge (Owner) is delightful and pays such attention to detail...she even supplied us with beach toys for my daughter, beach umbrella and fresh beach towels everyday. The rooms are situated seperately from the main house facing onto a beautiful... More

We stayed at On The Spot for three nights and had the most amazing time. The rooms are lovely, spacious and modern, pool area relaxing and breakfast every morning was spot on, great choice of fruit, yoghurts, toast and hot food. Inge was so lovely, interesting to talk to and helpful. Could not ask for more!!

This is an exceptional B & B. It is clean, comfortable, provided a nice breakfast with plenty of choice. The owner was welcoming and happy to give comment about local resources, e.g. restaurants. I regret not arranging to spend longer here.
