Just spent the best 4 days in a wonderful hotel. Paul and Vicky were the hosts with the most! A lovely hotel with great staff and breakfast. The hotel comes with a nice pool and bar area. Very comfortable bed and a breathtaking sea view in our room. Nothing was too much trouble whilst staying at the Havelock. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone. Keep up the good work and we hope to return next season.
