We stayed over a couple of weeks ago. Although it is a lovely place with stunning views, we found the room we had, not very practical. We had an "outside" room downstairs. A very "busy" room. It was an open plan. I think it should be made clear when a room has an open plan bathroom. It is not to everybody's taste. It had a big corner bath, a huge unpractical basin right next to it and then a small toilet/shower cramped in the corner, still in line with the bath/basin. Although the toilet/shower was closed off with class, surely I dont want anyone sitting on the throne barely half a meter from where I am having coffee in bed! Dining room is upstairs with the most spectacular views and the breakfast and service excellent. Safe parking. I would stay there again, but definately ask to see the room first. And please note that this place is not walking distance to the popular restaurants. Maybe during the day when you go along the beach. It is situated in the new part of Jeffreys and most of the best restaurants are in the old part. It is a perfect location for the beach however.
