Stayed at 'The Duke' for two nights and what a treat. We rang to say we would be late arriving and this was not a problem. Everyone made us feel welcome. Great lunch and dinner.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and reading the information book in the room about the hotel facilities was worth the read. So different from all others I have seen. Go there and read it for yourself to see what I mean.
Great room (4) over looking the sea and got some good photos.
If driving, I would suggest you go by the Ferry if travelling at night ($12 for car, driver and passenger) rather then going via the road.
Unfortunately we did not get to see the great sunset we had heard about, so will just have to go back again!
