Wonderful place to stay with a homely atmosphere where you are really cared for! Amazing breakfasts! It is close to the beach and restaurants. Great location and hospitality. The room is spacious and comfortable. Next time we will book a self catering unit. The gardens are beautiful and your surroundings lovely! We had a great swim in the pool. Thank you Peter and Cilla!
