We stayed here following recommendation from a colleague and are so glad we did. The room was clean and beautifully decorated with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was amazing with a vegetarian option. There is a lovely snug lounge area and a separate honesty bar. The walk to the harbour isn't very long but it is quite steep....

We were given a warm welcome by Sharon who gave us lots of tips on where to eat, places to visit e.c.t. Our kingsize room on the second floor had an amazing view of the harbour and was very pretty at night with lots of sparkly lights reflecting on the sea. Everything was spotless and the bed was really comfy....
