Comfortable stay
Comfortable stay, owners very understanding when our dog was unwell. Fresh fruit for breakfast was a plus. Reasonably priced evening meals, lovely steak pie. Beautiful surroundings and view.

Beautiful hotel in little quiet village
We stayed for two nights with our staffy pup. First impressions were fabulous. Hosts were friendly and advised the information needed very well. The bed was comfortable and clean. The shower was a little small but very welcoming as was very decent to work the temperature. Breakfast was amazing however we had to advise what time as there is a small breakfast room which i thought was a nice little touch. Amazing walks nearby close to the harbour and a few little treasures along the way. Was a pleasure to visit.
