    Nothing fancy, but clean rooms, good view, friendly service. Our room had a nice long counter which was great for our bags. We enjoyed the simple breakfast. And there's a lovely walk to town along the shore.

    It was a very spacious room that was very quiet, clean and comfortable. There was a great view of the sea, we saw seals herding fish from our front verandah. It was easy to get to shops and restaurants.
