We were here for 2 nights and had a really big room (place for 4 people). The room was really clean and the view on the see really nice! Staff was very friendly. 4 * because of the bathroom on the 2nd day. It smells really bad, we don't know what but we were happy to leave :/ 🙈

We stayed there for 2 nights and there was no problem there. The bathroom door knob is a bit broken but we couldn't really care less because we had such an amazing view of the bay from our room! Make sure you get the sea view room.

Fabulous staff, lovely clean room, great view. The young woman on reception bends over backwards to help. Was ranked 29th on TripAdvisor 7 years ago - is now ranked 4th and well deserved. In the centre of the main street so handy to cheap eats and beer. They have re-branded the restaurant, it's now called Toms and is obviously very...

We stayed at the VIP room on the 10th floor overlooking the bay. The room was spacious and so was the huge balcony. The room was clean and nicely furnished - nothing fanc but overall great value for money. The staff was also really nice and very helpful.

The rooms are good here, we had 2 nights in the Seaview room which was very nice and 3 nights in a double room without a view.. also good. The hot water in the shower is poor, and it seems they control it from reception and so late at night we couldn't have a shower as it was turned off...

Booked the room with very short notice, got a free upgrade. Room very clean and staff very willing to help with requests. Went on the island tour booked through the hotel which was great. Hotel were able to sort out transport back to mainland, very satisfied. Great hotel, great value.
