Stayed after swimming with Dolphins, superb . Rooms very small, but we only booked the standard courtyard room. Rooms very clean and tidy. Host very helpful and friendly. Cafe served the most amazing breakfast and also fab wine and cheese board at night.

We booked a front room with ocean views and balcony and we were not disappointed as this is what we got and the view is lovely and the balcony a generous size to be able to sit outside and read or enjoy a nice pre-dinner drink. What I was disappointed in was the window blinds faced the morning sun and the room was alight with the new day a little too early for me. While we did not stay here to watch TV I was amazed that the only service available was Freeview. Apart from this, the room was great, location is good and the staff friendly.

Exquisitely designed rooms, super comfortable. We had Junior Waterfront Suite above cafe, gorgeous evening sun. Worth spending a little more to have that glorious view. Gorgeous little touches, sparkling clean. The loveliest welcome from owner Jen who has put love and style into this precious building of old. One of most comfortable beds around. Wonderful to see these buildings protected. It's perfectly positioned, lovely walk into town and gorgeous mountain and sea views. We loved our stay.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely hotel the proprietor Jen was helpful and obliging nothing was a problem she went out of her way to be helpful, and the rest of the staff followed her example. A lovely courtyard to sit and have a glass of wine or a meal. All in all a nice place to stay.

Stayed here for one night as we headed North. It was a great decision, made even better looking at the view while having breakfast. We had a courtyard room which was very comfortable and quiet, the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend and stay at again.
