A small very comfortable hotel in lovely surroundings and very peaceful. Excellent staff and nothing was too much trouble. Food was of a high quality and standard and good variety of drinks too. An ideal place for a relaxing break.

We had a

I have written several reviews of this hotel, and I love it more every time I go there.
The High Life is a small 3 star hotel with only 20 rooms, but for me, the comfort, the ambiance, the friendliness, all mean so much more than large impersonal hotels.
It’s a joy to arrive late

A small Hotel located around 3 miles from the Harbour for those without children. During our stay the age profile of guests was 50+ with many paying a return visit. Several guests spent all day around the swimming pool. There is a very comprehensive library in Reception. The Hote

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. High Life is for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing environment close enough to the city crowd with a short ride, but also back to peace and tranquility quickly. We are on the sea, away from the main roads with 180+ degrees of sea view from our terrace, with a private deck and stairs into the water. Just 2.5 kms from the city center. Most of our rooms have sea views in addition to mountains, some both. Our restaurant is generally open until around 22:00. Sounds like your arrival may have just missed it as it was towards the end of dinner time. We would have been happy to put something together for you or make prior arrangements as we usually do. Our guests who may arrive late can make choices from our menu posted on our site and have it ready waiting for them (preferable delicious cold dishes). This service is available at no extra charge. Your feedback is important to us and getting a sign on the main road (which was unfortunately damaged twice recently) and more lighting in our rooms including reading lights are on top of our improvements list. We track guest suggestions in detail and will carry out work over this winter for improvements based on feedback. Our internet service is generally very good and it is a service we specifically monitor constantly. Sounds like you were able to watch movies on Netflix without problems. Our wifi reception is excellent in all areas of our property. Still, we are planning to switch to a new provider with even more speed for 2019 season. We are not able to get local European channels due to geographical restrictions but our cable TV has many many channels in English, more than just a few. Providing some sort of tasteful live entertainment suitable to our atmosphere is in our immediate future plans. Thank you for your comments on our food, which is very important to us. We hope you will consider us again in the future if you feel like a relaxing, no hassle stay. Thank you for taking the time to review us. Regards.

Hi, We are looking forward to our stay from 25th October to 1st November. Do you have Wi-fi? And is it possible to book a room with a sea view please?
Dear Joan, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Yes, we have wi-fi. We can sure make a note to get you the room you prefer but unfortunately we are unable to guarantee due to operational reasons. We are generally very good at meeting requests though so no worries. See you soon. Regards.

"Ask if you want twin or double or over-looking the pool. We didn't over-look the pool and it was probably more private as a result"
"Overlooking pool is good"
"Rooms 21-26 best for mobility issues, 27-31 have mezzanine floor with good views"
"First floor rooms have a better view."
"most of the rooms are facing the garden"
US$94 - US$419 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
