We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were extremely helpful and the view from the deck are upstairs and the pool fantastic. Breakfast and communal areas were also great. The only negative is that the rooms downstairs are all off the communal areas/ breakfast room so it was very noisy in the morning when staff were preparing breakfast pre...

Good points: Lovely converted house. Nice furnishings Good full breakfast Location is nice and central for both the beach and the local shops Bad points: Staff are quite rude, with the exception of the lady serving breakfast. Check in is limited to 4pm. We had emailed prior to our arrival, but apparently the hotel hadn't received this. Thankfully we weren't...

Thank you for your constructive complaint. I can assure you that management has taken these points up with staff and we will grow from this experience. Check in is definitely not limited to 16hoo, as relief arrives as soon as cleaning staff go home, with a phone number placed outside. Light and fan issues will be sorted out. Thank you...

Met and exceeded expectations, wonderful location and beautiful house. Can't recommend highly enough, the staff were so friendly and helpful. We could walk to town and beach and the views from the terrace were outstanding. Travelled with 2 small children and we were all made to feel so welcome

We stayed for 3 nights in the Captains Cabin. This room and views were amazing. We had private access to the shared pool and a fabulous G&T patio which was small but perfect for the 2 of us. The guesthouse itself is very well presented, airy and immaculately clean, with 2 sitting, one of which is a balcony with breathtaking...

We stayed one night. The rooms are very bright and well equipped. We loved the view from the porch which is really, really nice. There are great restaurants nearby. We recommend The Table which serves excellent Italian food. Breakfast at the guest house is continental standard.

We only stayed for one night, but it was well worth the visit. Great rooms, excellent views, and about a 5min walk from the centre where all bars and restaurants are located. Breakfast was good as well. Would have gave 5/5 but we did feel there was a slight lack of privacy, due to the communal area being right outside...

I stayed two nights in the Ocean View. And it really does have a wonderful view. After a long flight it was so nice to get into the comfortable bed, with white cotton sheets and a soft duvet, I slept so well. Breakfast next morning was served buffet style. The ladies who looked after us were very welcoming, introduced themselves...

Amazing place with breath taking view. one of the best places we stayed in on our garden route trip. the rooms are comfortable and clean. the value you get for this price is very good. The "Captain Cabin" room is amazing and very luxury, but the wifi signal there almost doesn't exist. the wifi in the other rooms are good....
