Dismal visit to an empty bar with a distinctly odd and unwelcoming barman. So bad we won’t be returning despite the excellent location. Have peered in window on another 2 ocassions and it’s been empty with same guy on duty, no thanks.

Love the location, close to harbour and ferry. Breakfast was fantastic. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Really friendly atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again. Plenty of tea and coffee facilities in room. For what we paid it was worth the stay.

We had an overnight stay. First impressions were that it was very clean everywhere. We were given a very small room, and I spent a very uncomfortable night trying to sleep in a compact bed squeezed against the wall. Add to this the fact that...More
