Reef cottage is comfortable and a great place to stay, but you must not expect 20th Century accommodation. It is a beautifully restored and maintained 19th Century cottage. It offers four bedrooms, lounge, dining room and kitchen. Yes, there is Wi-Fi, the kitchen is modern, the bathrooms have hot water and you do not need to chop wood to run the heating, but you almost feel as if you should be out there with an axe. Beds are comfortable and the bedrooms have televisions and iPod players. Breakfast is in the cafe next door and includes toast, cereal and a traditional English breakfast prepared on request. All in all an interesting and comfortable experience.

We were a bit misled by the term 'private separate bathroom' as quoted on the website. Sure, the bathroom is private (you alone have the key to it), it is separate (ie it is not in your bedroom), but you have to walk down a public hallway to get to the bathroom.
Also we were provided with a pretty average continental breakfast, no cooked breakfast in sight. Delicious expresso coffee provided though.
I would only recommend this B&B to a group of friends, it has four bedrooms (2 with ensuites and 2 with bathrooms down the hallway). While we were there the other rooms were occupied by a group of friends, and they had a great time together, we we sat in our room waiting for them all to go to bed, so we could walk down the hallway in our PJs.

Room Tip: If you want an ensuite, don't choose a room with a 'private separate bathroom' - these r...
