    Very nice and comfortable place to stay. Good location, close to boats for whale watching and only a short drive into town. Staff are friendly and the place itself is very nice. No complaints, would recommend

    Had a lovely stay. Very "homey" feeling and hanging out in the share rooms felt natural. Very helpful host - with good advice for activities and assistance in booking a restaurant for dinner. Nice breakfast. Big, clean room and bathroom.
