We stayed here for four nights in mid-August as three retired former colleagues. Would definitely recommend it. Lovely location looking across to Holy Island.
We chose 'cosy doubles' as we were single occupancy and they were fine for that but would be a bit tight for a couple, and the headroom was quite restricted in places. They were on the second floor, so a bit of a climb - but we were on a walking holiday! The room quality - bed, decorative condition and bathroom were all excellent - heated mirror so it didn't steam up! - only minor quibble was that sometimes the shower drained too slowly so the water level rose in the shower tray, but it was a good sized cubicle and an effective shower. Good provision of tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and biscuits. Good TV. There was even a pair of binoculars in each room for guest use. Free wi-fi (with occasional glitches).
The breakfasts were excellent, as were the evening meals, decent wine list. Wise to book a table for dinner well in advance - we could not always get our first choice of time.
The staff were very efficient and helpful and also friendly. They remembered you and what you had asked for, and were clearly well-trained. Small hotel with an informal atmosphere with high standards.
A very satisfactory experience.
