All around excellent service and breakfasts. Location for exploring the area was very good. No access to water at position of kettle was inconvenient. Smell from fish factory in the middle of the night was unique.

This place has great views, great rooms and the staff are beyond amazing. I would highly recommend staying here. The owners would always help us with planing our day and even came and picked us up when stranded 1 hour away from the hotel.

Thank you Daniela. I am of the opinion that people who are kind and open attract the same from others, a great meeting for me too. Glad you had a good stay with us and would love to see you again in the future...

Very friendly place, staff is very helpful and ensures a pleasant place. Well located, with an amazing view on sea and whale (for the ones who want to watch). The rooms are clean, comfortable and the home made health bread is just delicious! Luv it!

Awesome, so glad you enjoyed. We are having a fabulous whale season and they can be seen from our deck and the sea view verandas hanging out in the bay. The health bread gets many kudo's, thank you.
