We had a wonderful experience with good food, excellent service and a very comfortable room with a great view of the harbour. The evening meal we had was good and, again, the service could not be faulted.

Very lovely space with fabulous staff and views. We arrived late but the staff immediately came out and helped get all our luggage to our rooms - all 4 of our rooms. The next morning breakfast was done just like we wanted. Will be back for sure. Loved it all.

We found this magical place by chance on the internet & were amazed that it had NO negative reviews..... Now we know why! Despite it being further up a hill than I expected & my wife having mobility issues, it didn't present a problem as the staff went over & above what was expected of them. Thank you Darwin, Sam,...
