Fantastic over night stay, accommodation was lovely, very clean and lots of hot water. Room on the small size but still enough space. Chairs and table outside so you can sit and have morning coffee in the sunshine. The food was of high standard.

We stayed here for a wedding on the beach. The reception was not apparently where you should check in and we were appraised by staff for going to the 'wrong place' No word of welcome was given. The gardens are overgrown and neglected. The rooms...More

We were very pleased with the food, service and setting. Excellent local produce, especially the fish, and hard to fault anything. Booking essential.
