Very convenient - about a 2 min walk to the beach, pub and dairy.
Very comfortable, high quality linen, nice and soft pillow top mattress topper on the bed
Immaculately clean, spacious with lovely scented shampoo, conditioner and soaps
Luxurious. Our room was beautifully furnished and colour coordinated. Loved the fine china tea cups.
COMMENTS and SCORE:
Steve and Pete are very welcoming and accommodating. On arrival we were greeted by Steve, had a lovely chat and were invited for the cocktails at 5 o`clock. We checked into our room and found some chocolates and a welcome card there on the table from Pete and Steve which was just lovely. The cocktails were absolutely delicious (Rata Margarita, Honey Tiramisu, 50 Shades of passion, to name a few) just as the 3 course dinner which followed (separate review). We really enjoyed the evening chatting to fellow travellers and drinking good local wines. We mentioned to Steve that we will be leaving early in the morning before the breakfast time and at the end of the dinner we were given a large tray to take to our room. Yoghurt, honey, cereal, fruits, little chocolates - the delicious selection for our early breakfast in our room. That was very nice, delicious as well. 10 out of 10.
