“Sombre, great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

loved it all, sombre and beautifully kept, but some great views of the coast, not forgetting all the fallen RIP.

“Peaceful, tranquil and serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Steps went up the hillside to the cemetery, you see a large cross and a wall and the cemetery is laid out on the gentle slope beyond. It is beautifully kept and thought provoking as you walk along the rows and see how many lost souls were hardly out of their teens.

“Peaceful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

As with all war cemeteries it was well maintained but less striking than most. Interesting to seethe war from a different perspective.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

A short walk from the Hotel - well worth a visit, fantastic views from up there. Then walk to the tomb - also interesting.
