We stayed one night in a romantic room with a gorgeous view over the bay. We saw whales breaching in the bay from our room which was a real highlight. The bath was absolutely huge, breakfast was good, and the location was perfect.

Our room was great, modern and a lovely view.It was actually a suite with separate living room,kitchen and doors that opened up completely for an incredible view of the water. We had a king bed that was really comfy with nice duvet and good pillows. It was right in town with restaurants and shops close-by. Be sure to book a... More

From my initial email enquiry up till the day we left everything went as smooth and professional as one would expect from this kind of establishment. The this place is on prime property right above the Old Harbour with its winter whale sightings (the whales practically live here) and is surrounded by many incredible restaurants a few meters away.

We stayed two nights bed and breakfast at this hotel with our son in a separate room. The hotel has off street parking for residents and its rooms are very modern with comfortable beds, free wifi and a small kitchen area. They also provided bottled water and chocolate brownies every night which was a nice touch. Breakfast was good with... More

Central location, overlooking the ocean and Old Harbour. Our room was clean and comfortable with a useful 'kitchenette ' area. The restaurant area for breakfast was quite small but in fine weather there is plenty of room on the terrace.

We've just spent a very pleasant 2 nights here. The room was great, and as it was our anniversary, they had added extra romantic touches like scattering rose petals on the bed and in the bath. The personalised Welcome note was also appreciated, albeit with our name spelt wrong. Booking was a bit confusing. I contacted the hotel directly, before... More

Booked online in what we assumed to be the main hotel, but ended up in the annex above restaurants - noisy and the room smelt damp. We were advised of the option to move and packed up our bags based on the promise of a new Premium room by 12pm. After lunch we returned to the hotel at 2pm where... More

A lovely room with large balcony overlooking the garden, the pool and of course one of the best views in town looking out to sea. We were lucky enough to see masses of dolphin on both days. A...

This has to be the best service I have ever had in a hotel nothing was too small and gave lots of advise on where to go to see and eat very helpful. Reserved parking was a bonus as the hotel was right on the sea front and right by the shops
