We ate in the bar which was absolutely fantastic and great value for money. The breakfast was made to order and again was absolutely delicious.

We have been staying at the beach hotel for years and always considered it a hidden gem. So to enjoy a memorable birthday where else to celebrate with family and friends.

We were not staying in the hotel but dropped in to have an early meal. We had delicious Scampi with garlic saute potatoes. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the bill was middle range. We will certainly return.

The hotel is recently renovated. The rooms are bright clean and modern. The breakfast was excellent, the staff were friendly professional and polite. The bar had a good selection of Gins and the ambience was relaxed. Walking distance to the harbour & beach would recommend this hotel for convenience and value would rate it as 4 star hotel

Very nice hotel, friendly & helpful staff, and restaurants/food were excellent. Has a nice pub with food and TVs. Our room was spotless and roomy enough. Very comfortable. Location is sedate and a gorgeous view of the ocean with a beach are a short walking distance from the hotel.

The staff at this hotel are outstanding. They went above and beyond what was expected. They were helpful and had good suggestions for things to do in the area. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. I was looking for a specific whiskey, which they didn't have (hard to find). The bar tender went to his boss to see if they...
