From outside it looks old. Really old. With a couple of really dated signs, one of which says AA 2 star, all of which give the wrong impression that what you get inside might be a little worn, dated and dusty. We turned up on spec, booked a room, took what we could get then went for a walk. By the time we got back, I was feeling quite ill, so we went straight to our room which was absolutely gorgeous! I always feel that when you walk into a hotel room, you should feel like you're the first people to say there. And that's exactly what it felt like. Didn't take long for me to start feeling better after a lie down while my other half sat in the window overlooking the harbour. The room was really comfortable, perfectly clean, well appointed and nothing looked out of place. The bathroom, the same. I fell asleep in the bath in the evening!
We had dinner there, which was also marvellous - we totally overdosed on seafood! Breakfast was similarly good - best cooked breakfast I've had in a hotel, with a choice of various cereals and fruit.
We had room 2, with a marvellous view of the harbour, and paid £70. Very reasonable for the quality. I asked the owner why they could possibly be considered only 2 star?! Apparently, this is what happens if you don't have a car park... well, maybe this will keep it a hidden gem :)
