The room and facilities were excellent as was the private balcony looking out to the harbour. The outside bar area and street is a bit noisy in the late evening and is close to the room. Because of the high temperatures we could not close the windows as there is no air conditioning. No breakfast was available . The food... More

Spent four nights here over new year and had a great time. Location perfect for both the views, a good buzz from the restaurants etc and just a short stroll round the waterfront to the town centre. Great to have offstreet parking at this busy time of year also. We had room 2 which I think is the largest and... More

Thanks 667trish We are glad you enjoyed you stay with us. We have recently upgraded the lighting in the restaurant with new LED lights and are looking to do the same with our rooms upstairs as soon as possible. Thank you for letting us know about the kitchen cupboard, we will see to that very soon. More

Visited this restaurant for dinner with a table of 10 people. Orders were taken fast and very efficiently. The service was great throughout the meal and there were many fantastic gluten free options on the menu. One order was mucked up but they fixed that very quickly. Meals a reasonable price and the pizzas are amazing!!Would definitely go back again,... More

This is a two-night review: First night - takeaway pizza, with a drink at the bar while we waited (me & son). Lovely staff, quick service and the pizzas arrived before we finished our drinks! The pizzas were fab - thin base and lovely flavours. Gorgeous location! Second night - ate at a water-view table, again with 10-year old in... More

As the title states - just the best and consistently so as my first sample was on a previous trip there and was so good that I took my partner back there! Just nom nom nom! Great service and staff. Super log fire which was just great to warm up in front of after having been on a harbour cruise... More

We called in for a casual beer to be met with two 13 or 14 year old school girls sitting in a prime spot chatting away and singing to the piped music. Next a couple of young boys, say one 6 and the other 10 behind the bar for a considerable time. It was dead quiet due to the cold... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I wasn't aware that my children could not get themselves a cold drink after school without being judged. Had they of served your beverage than yes you could have complained. The 2 young girls whom do work for me were actually having hot chocs after school so had a right... More

Mumma always said if you cant say something nice dont say nothing at all. Great location. No sorry cant resist it. I'm baffled. L'Hotel bills itself as a boutique hotel. Interesting.

Great location, right on the beach with restaurants around it. The room was nice and clean, spacious enough, with a cute balcony to sit on and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. We were there in the off season and so great value for money on the room price. We would stay again!
