We arrived late afternoon and were warmly welcomed. Our flatlet was very presentable and comfortable with a lovely view of the marina. They recommended a very good restaurant where we had a very good meal. Our breakfast was good. we were able to leave feeling refreshed and ready for the next day of travelling.

We had a really relaxing 3-night stay at The Lookout. Great central location with the most wonderful views. Friendly and caring service by Louise and her able team. Room 3 has the best views of the 3 rooms.

We really enjoyed our short stay at The Lookout. We'll definitely recommend it to any one looking for well-equipped, private and affordable accommodation. The service was also super! We were sorry to leave so soon.
