I am a well travelled person both with my work and holidays and I can honestly say that this hotel/lodge is the best I have ever stayed in.

Recently had 3 nights here in group of 12 mixed age ( mostly 25-35 ) and absolutely loved it. At the end of the road, so views on 3 sides.The hosts are the most welcoming couple you could imagine, and the hospitality and meals exceptional - either 6 course western dinner, or sumptuous traditional Japanese with exquisite fruit creme brûlée...
