Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel in a superior twin room. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and the hotel was clean and cosy with modern facilities. There was a lovely view of the harbour from our room and lots of little indoor and outdoor nooks around the hotel to read or enjoy a beverage. The breakfast...

We have been visiting the area for over 40 years but knew nothing of this establishment. We were pleasantly surprised on all levels. The staff were friendly...

Overall extremely pleasant. Comfortable and friendly hotel with a very good restaurant for dining. Despite being described as cosy the room was a good size with a comfortable sofa and a view across the harbour. There is tea and cake available in the afternoon, a happy hour and honesty bar. The only downside was that the hotel's terms and conditions...

This is a lovely welcoming hotel, very near the harbour area with lovely views - especially from the restaurant. Our room was spotlessly clean with a high standard of in room refreshments which included a coffee pot and "real coffee". The food in the restaurant in the evening was nice, though I felt there could have been more choice for...
