The staff are very helpful and try hard to keep everyone happy. Lovely sea views and spacious balcony. The only complaint I could have is, they could use double glassing windows so you won't hear waves on the shore.

The hotel was welcoming, comfortable and the owners friendly. We enjoyed our stay and a good breakfast. The views are beautiful and the location great both for the town and for the peninsula walk. We would definitely visit again.
