What a wonderful find. If you are looking to get away for a weekend and get away from it all this is the place.
We booked it after seeing it list as one of the top 50 hotels in the world by one of the national newspapers.
The village is beautiful and the hotel is right on the edge of the boat ramp. Split over three buildings it is idyllic. Unfortuntley we didn't get the best weather while there but it took nothing away from the view.
The rooms and bed are high quality but still offer a touch of home, which is missing in so many other hotels.
One thing that may annoy some people is the lack of wi-fi (its only in the main building and not the best strength) and zero mobile phone signal. But it made us realise how much we check our phones and it was a breath of fresh air to be cut off and allowed us to truly relax.
The breakfast is great, with a wide choice including local fish. The dinner was a little pricey but again of excellent quality. the only bad thing i have to say is that restaurant did seem to lack any atmosphere are people seemed to be very quiet while eating.
The pub up the road is very friendly and does offer reasonable pub grub and ok prices.
I would recommend this hotel for a few nights as a complete get away.
