My wife and I stayed here for two to play golf in the area with three other couples. This small hotel is a hidden gem. Its location is wonderful, looking over the old fishing harbour. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a very high standard, so it was a very pleasant surprise to find this in such a remote...

What a great place that we came across by accident. The room was on the top floor and overlooked a majestic view of the sea. The room was comfortable but not on the large size however with the window open overlooking the sea we did not care. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent.
