“Charming!”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

This bed and breakfast type establishment is a wonderful way to spend a weekend or a week.
Ocean front, beautiful views, rocking chairs on the front porch. Complementary continental breakfast, afternoon tea and cookies, and port and wine served with cheese in the early evening. And coffee or tea at any hour of the day or night in the lobby. The room we stayed in did not face the ocean, but it was lovely, even though it was smallish. There were complementary white his and hers robes, which was a nice touch. Staff could not have been more accomodating. Our towel rack broke and we mentioned it to the maid, within minutes a handyman came to the room and did the repair. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing getaway. We will definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed in one of this Inn's best rooms. For the rate being charged, especially during low/shoulder season, you would think they would try to make the decor a bit nicer. You don't have to spend a lot to make things look presentable. The air conditioning unit smelled of mold/mildew and looked to be old and ready for refurbishment as well.

Enjoyed a wonderful week-end with unexpected warm weather in fall 2011.
Excellent welcome, fantastic room with beach view.
Service was exemplary, room was spacious , clean and lovely soft furnishings.
Continental breakfast, afternoon cookies,refreshments and port and crackers with cheese all included. Lovely outside sitting areas and the sister hotel facility Strypers Restaurant was also very good, situated across the estuary.

A wonderful place to stay, hope you have the same luck with weather we enjoyed.

The town is very cute and touristy but worth a visit, parking can be an issue.

Overall great place to stay.

We stayed here for 1 night on Level 1. The room was nice - a little small but fairly typical guest house. The balcony is great and the port and brandy offered pre tea is a nice touch. The view is good from the front of the guest house and the common areas were very pleasant. no noise issues. I recommend this place.
