Two friends and I stayed for 5 days in late October. The weather was wonderful, the visits to other islands each day were delightful and the New Inn was an excellent base.
The beds were very comfortable and our rooms and bathrooms clean and bright, but it still managed to retain the feel of an old Inn.
Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and the dinners every night were extraordinarily good. Imaginative, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious food. They obviously had a top-notch chef whilst we were there. There was plenty of choice on the main menu and each day they had an additional "specials" menu. The selection of wines was excellent as well. If we hadn't been doing so much walking during the day, we would have put on a lot of weight!
The staff were all very considerate and helpful.
A wonderful experience! I couldn't fault it.
