We spent 3 nights in a family garden room with sea view. The room was spacious and comfortable. Big bathroom though it was the only part that was not renovated. The hotel itself was lovely, perfect size so intimate enough but still allowing enough privacy and without being overbearing. The service was great, personal and attentive. On our first morning...

This really is a lovely hotel in an absolutely gorgeous location. It's been refurnished relatively recently and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Great food too. We had a garden room which. Was absolutely lovely, but I imagine that the sea view rooms are equally beautiful. Recommended.

Wonderful views, comfortable & spacious room with very pleasant patio area. Superb shower room, spotlessly clean & with lovely soft towels. A joy to have fresh milk easily available in our room...
