I was looking for a place to stay along the coastal route and chanced upon Snug Cove. After reading the reviews, I decided to go ahead to stay one night at Snug Cove.
That was my biggest mistake! Staying one night at Snug Cove is not enough. Our hosts Jennifer and Eric were simply wonderful. Eric, with his laid back style, was considerate and thoughtful. We arrived at Snug Cove late in the evening and Eric was worried that we would not be able to find dinner. Hence, he offered to prepare a simple platter for us. My wife and I gratefully accepted his offer. The platter was simply satisfying. Thumbs up for the thoughtful service and delicious food! Double thumbs up to Snug Cove for the welcome wine and cheese platter which was prepared for us as well. The food was more than enough for both of us.
Our room was cosy and the bed was comfortable and a great sleep. We had to force ourselves out from the bed else we would miss breakfast. It was just too comfortable and relaxing.
Breakfast was delicious and simply a treat. The fruits platter was fresh and appetizing and the bacon was done just nice to a crisp. The jam was so good that I wish I could have brought the jam home. Many thanks to Jennifer for such a delicious meal.
Eric was very helpful when we discussed about our plans ahead during our trip. He gave us pointers and places to visit, as well as a booklet on the towns along the coastal road. It was the lovely personal touch in this B&B which made us regret leaving so soon.
