I stayed here on a work trip and found, completely by accident this little gem. The location is good close to the centre of the village and right by the water. My room was neat, tidy and well appointed with a large flat screen TV and a decent selection of channels.
The bar area is light, airy and comfortable again with an uninterrupted view over the bay. Food is also very good with a good selection of dishes and a good selection of specials. The quality of draft beer was also very good - the beer was crystal clear and chilled to perfection. I found the bar staff very friendly, attentive and willing to chat. Breakfast is also very good with a selection of cereals, yoghurt and an amazing cooked option!
I was also privileged to watch two otters playing around in the water opposite the hotel as well as a number of different seabirds and a seal - obviously the location for wildlife watchers!
Overall a good place to stay and base yourself with lots of attractions close by and some stunning views.
