Have not had the chance to stay here yet but as they are intending staying open all year, unlike the other 2 hotels, will definitely do so.
However, I have eaten here several times and consider the food and the value to be excellent. While the menu changes rarely, just like the other 2 hotels, the range is good on both the bar and evening menu, the food is superb, the portions are generous and represents very good value. There is a good wine list also. As I say, well worth a call.
One point worth bearing in mind and one that seems to be overlooked/ignored by a lot of reviewers is that the island is small with a total resident population of around 180. The season is short, say around 14 weeks, with a smallish number of visitors who would stay overnight. So to expect each hotel to run an operation similar to one even in a medium sized town is unrealistic. The quality, variety and service offered therefore is excellent and to be commended .
Best of luck to them all!
