Being early January, the restaurant was very quiet and we had both a wonderful view and excellent service to compliment the delicious roast beef we ordered. Having recommended to a few friends and colleagues since, it seemed the obvious choice when...

We had booked a half day Spa deal with 2 treatments, then 2 course lunch. We had a very relaxing time. Treatments were great, facilities all excellent.

The name gave the impressions that it was close too or overlooked the harbour when in fact it has a magnificent view over the beach and sea. Our stay was wonderful. Winter maintenance had put the swimming pool and spar out of action so the management gave us...
