Very nice place, like the room we stayed in - view right down the lagoon to the heads.

Although the facilities were not state of the art, they were clean and more than adequate for our needs. Within walking distance of the waterfront with all it's restaurants and bars and amazing views over the lagoon. We couldn't have asked for a better location and our hosts were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I stayed here in Room 4 for one night as we travelled through and got a warm welcome. The room was comfortable, spotless and had a little balcony. The view overlooking the water was superb. It's not on the main street, but it's very close to the town - just a short walk away.
