This was a lovely little stopover hotel for our trip up the coast. The harbour was only a few minutes walk and the shops too were only a few minutes in the other direction. It is more of a motel but it's well kept. You can park outside your room and there are only two levels of accommodation. There is a walk way in the middle of the accommodation block which can get a bit noisy with people passing. The shower did not get particularly hot but it was fine for me. We loved the Jacuzzi and pool and only wished there was more sunlight for an autumn evening.
The free wine and cheese followed by cookies and milk was a lovely treat for the weary traveller. It's worth a walk down to the harbour and onto the pier.
Breakfast is continental and there isn't a great deal of seating as you're basically eating in the reception but we were only there for one day so it didn't bother us too much. I don't think it's suitable for a long stay but is a perfect place to stopover.
