Lovely hotel, extremely comfy bed. All bedrooms face the harbour with fantastic unobstructed views (Window panes nice and big). Relatively quiet despite being beside a working harbour. Nice breakfast in a nice bright harbour facing breakfast room. Staff were very friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The views of the harbor were wonderful. Rooms were nice and clean. Food in the dining room was very good. We didn't eat in the bar but that food looked great also. A short walk to the center with shops, pubs and restaurants.
