My friend and I stayed here at the end of April 2013 and loved it. The 4 bed dorm we stayed in, shared a large lounge and brilliantly equipped kitchen with a double room and a twin room (that were empty during our stay). We could really make the most of the clean kitchen and then sit out on the balcony that overlooked the sea for our meals! The accommodation was cleaned daily.
The staff were so helpful and were always on hand for advice or to book tours. I would recommend cathedral cove tours, a 5 hour minibus tour of the local area with time to spend at gorgeous cathedral cove and hot water beach.
The local town is an easy, flat walk away, following the coast line.
A lovely, relaxing stay thank you.
