Our lovely relaxed little hotel offers guests a choice of beautifully designed luxury bedrooms along with our very comfortable standard room (twin, double and triple rooms available) – so if you are looking for a great, comfortable hotel with clean rooms, lovely staff, a little bit of history all within walking distance to the beach – then we’re the place for you! Our kitchen – winner of 2018 Bravo Best Sunday Roast Awards, serves up some amazing awarding winning food, featuring our weekly Tuesday & Wednesday night pop up of delicious Indian and Sri Lankan street food and Thur, Fri, Sat & Sun we serve our Southern Belle menu.
