We stayed over on a weekend night. The room was neat and had everything required. The great advantage of staying here is that you are literally in the middle of the village and once you park your car can walk to all the local shops, restaurants and the market in 5 minutes. The cliff paths run almost past the front... More

The hotel is very clean and tidy and the room was modern and airy. Staff were friendly. The pool is in a excellent position overlooking the see and facing the sun all day. Free car parking with security gate which is good. The hotel is very quite and as most things in the town are closed after 5 there is... More

We walked into our room. It was huge, one corner a square table with 4 chairs, a living room with 2 sofas, a double bed. So far so good. Then we get to the bathroom. A rectangular room, one end the shower, next the sink and then the toilet. So, when you take a shower , no matter how careful... More

A pleasant modern hotel in a super location. Very nice breakfast. Lovely swimming pool that we would have used had it have been warmer. The only issue was the internet token system which seemed rather mean and did not seem to work properly.

We booked a couple of days in advance and made sure to ask for a room in the main hotel. The hotel is split into the harbour house hotel (main hotel area) and the harbour square( up the street across the road) I had specifically looked at both and picked a nicer room in the main part with a balcony...

Harbour House is just steps away from the village central shops and restaurants. The breakfast buffet is pretty good, they have a wide selection. Didn't try their regular restaurant though as there are so many other choices nearby. A note about their "free" wifi - you get a certain amount of data *I think* around 250MB free to surf. Once...

Beautiful view of the bay and position ideal for whale watching! Perfect location, superb accommodation, delicious food and excellent service. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Within walking distance of restaurants, market and shops. Most enjoyable stay, well recommended.

I stayed at the hotel for one night for business. The apartment that I stayed in was across the road from reception and the breakfast area which is certainly not ideal, especially if it is raining as it was. The apartment was spacious with a kitchen, lounge and separate bedroom. The water pressure of the shower was very poor and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel's understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean. The magnificent Lookout Terrace invites guests to relax around the infinity pool overlooking the ocean and savour a sundowner from the pool bar in the Pavilion. Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views, as well as the New Wing with 18 spacious suites, featuring sophisticated modern decor, a kitchenette and lounge leading out onto a private balcony. Guests are afforded luxury at every turn, from 100% fine white cotton bedding to marble and granite finishes. Sleek lines and carefully curated art pieces add to the modern aesthetic of each room. ... more   less
