Friendly staff made us feel welcome. Hotel is ideally placed to explore the town. Room was spacious and comfortable. Building is Grade A listed. We had tasty fresh fish in the evening and then enjoyed the old bar. Morning breakfast was excellent, especially after a walk to see

Thanks so much for your review. I am sorry we did not have any crab when you visited, we are at the mercy of the weather and whether the boats have been able to get out. I am delighted you enjoyed your haddock, we pride ourselves on delivering first class food and reviews like yours make it all worthwhile.Please do visit again. Kind Regards
