Pleasant stay withing walking distance from our favourite Italian restaurant. Staff friendly and helpfull. Enjoyed our stay. The view was great. Would have preferred a decent shower, do not like the baths with the "semi shower head"

The hotel has a wonderful view and well located it seems to be under refurbishement at the moment and the rooms we stayed at are rather old the bathrooms could use some attention other than that it is fine for a night or two. Breakfast is very good by the way

Spent just 2 nights but had a wonderful relaxing old world hotel type experience. Was recommended by friends and we will certainly be back. Pub could be a bit more social and perhaps a slightly bigger choice of snacks.

The hotel is situtated in the best position to enjoy the crashing of the waves and the play of the whales. Like most older hotels it is not perfect, but this is part of the charm. The rooms are small, no Air-con and in the room we used not even a handle to pull the bathroom door closed. ( it...

Excellent location and it feels like home. Only negatives- Staff need to be trained properly and bathrooms need an upgrade and the televisions. We had a good stay although it was our anniversary weekend which they knew and they ignored my request for one of the bigger rooms...this was dissapointing

We were just looking for a clean place to sleep while visiting town, ideally one well-located to the restaurants and the cliff walk. We reserved one of the cheap non-view rooms at the Windsor: actually it was in a secondary building behind the main hotel. The room was clean but nothing fancy, which is all we needed. The location, however,...
