My wife and I have just returned from a ten day holiday at the Island Inn and to say it was excellent does not do it justice. The Staff, the food, the atmosphere, the location was perfect.

I was not staying at the hotel so it is unfair of me to comment on the overall facility; however, I will comment about my restaurant experience. The day before, I stopped and asked if their restaurant was open to the public and from what I understood it was a buffet style,which to me suggested it was relaxed and casual....

Island Inn is a nice place, and it is quite clean. The rooms are decorated in a modern fashion and courtyard is totally enclosed by the hotel; you can sit out by a small pool (more like a plunge pool) on deck chairs. The flora in the courtyard is quite lovely. There is wifi available just in the bar area...
