Chanced upon this delightful hotel and planned to stay overnight. In the end, booked for three wondrous nights. Peaceful, friendly, professional though personal service, home-baked breakfasts, great coffee, and a pool to die for. Magnificent.

One of the greatest compliments we could get is a couple deciding to stay extra nights because they were enjoying themselves so much. You're both wonderful and we hope you come back soon. :-) More

Top, I would recommend this to anybody. The rooms must have been renovated short time ago. Everything is still very nice and new. The beach is very close to the Hotel. Other people must have been in another hotel or unable to walk 100m. I can not understand how you to complain about this.

A small intimate hotel in a wonderful beach side location plus very friendly and welcoming owners - a perfect combination for a relaxing holiday.. A home-cooked gourmet breakfast by the side of a sparkling pool a definite bonus!

Everything was perfect, from check-in to check-out. The owners, Greg and Jen, are wonderful and were very attentive throughout my entire stay. I was able to text the hotel before I arrived and inquire about my room status, which was ready right on time, and text them throughout my stay. This was very convenient as I was in the downtown...

I did not stay here, but I could not get into my own accommodation and they did everything possible to get in touch with the place where I was meant to be staying. They invited me to come to breakfast the next day and were just so very kind. Thankyou both!
