This was our first stop on a tour around the north.,looking back, this hotel stands out for the lovely setting and good location but also the outstanding dining room.The food is at a high international standard and very delicious too.
the rooms only have single beds which seems a pity but they are not basic , in the sense of other hotels we have stayed. By this I mean that the bathroom was modern ,water hot, the bed was soft, so important! and there was a stunning view of the ocean. Everything is spotless. The owner was clearly very interested to maintain standards and is interested in the details which accumulate into a special place.
He was very helpful when we had car problems, speaking to the firm on our behalf.. i will be very happy to return.
