Good location, surrounded by the wilde green of the island. Independent solution in a little, well-mantained apartment. Situeted in a strategical position to take the ferry. Not too mutch choice for breakfast. Kind staff .

Had a lovely two nights stay in a seafront room. Very spacious and comfortable room. Lovely view over the sea from the room and balcony. On quiet street, only traffic was cars coming off the ferry but barely noticeable. Easy walk to local pub and several cafes as an alternative to hotel restaurant for breakfast. Great location for ferry access... More

My first observation is that the rooms are not in line with the general aspect of the hotel. We had a garden villa at the back of the hotel and it was very clean and reasonnably comfortable. We had a good night and the place was quiet. The hotel and its supposed facilities would however deserve a complete rejuvenation. The... More

We stayed in the garden villa at the back rather than the main hotel complex, and could not have been happier. The rooms were huge and really beautiful, and exceptionally clean. The staff were real characters and you could tell that they were very proud of their little island and all that it has to offer. They were very helpful... More

Stay there for one day, a clean, neat and located right next to the ferry stations which is convenient. Good list of TV channel , breakfast is ok with basic selection of hot and cold plate However, it is a really basic hotel with some drawback like, 'slow' WIFI , reception (well basically the hotel office) close at 7:30PM and...

As part of a travel package my husband and I elected to stay in a garden villa at the Seafront. It was a great decision, the villa was very private surrounded by gardens with a small deck at the front of the villa. We were in unit 21, easy access to the car park and only 2 steps needed to... More

Located right above ferry terminal. An old building with no lift so make sure your bags are light if you have an upstairs room. Love the shower, the best one I've had on my 3 week holiday. Bit disappointed as not many dinner options available in town due to low season and minimal and not many options there anyway.

The hotel building is old, but the room decor has been renovated and is modern with all regular features. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for evening meals, but it was low season. Breakfast was adequate, but due to tariff we expected more. There is a laundry that is available for no additional charge, that we utilised. This... More

The hotel is very nice and the rooms quite comfortable. Good place to stay in Penneshaw. The breakfast nothing special but adequate. The staff is friendly but maybe because of low season for them, they were there only to check in and check out. The room did not have the telephone and the wifi was not accessible from the bedroom.... More
