We stayed at Tonnam for 7 nights in Feb'13 and loved every bit of it. We loved it so much that the day of departure we have incredibly sad leaving the excellent friends we had made back there.
Tonnam is a small property 8 cottages/rooms only what really distinguishes it is the tasteful manner in which the property/rooms have been decored and the incredibly personal touch of the owners (Cecile & Yul) and the staff (Pom & her team). In fact, bigger chains and so called 'boutique' hotels can learn a thing or two from the property.
The property has far more facilities than the name suggests. There is a superb swimming pool, a jacuzzi and options of steam/sauna/massage which is just fantastic. Pom runs a lovely kitchen and prepared everything (including the sausages & jam) inhouse.
The owners Cecile and Yul and his staff Pom are very warm people. We spend many a evenings with music and drinks with them and loved their company so much that they have now become a part of our lives as good friends. The warmth that oozed out from them was truly overwhelming.
We will keep coming back to this home of ours :-) !
