We were made to feel at home and there was no problem with a large group - 10 of the same family. The food is great and the location means you can leave the car and walk everywhere. Great nibbles in the rooms and lovely clean, warm rooms. Excellent service

The house itself is magnificent, it's central to everything - minutes away from the beach, and the included breakfast was delicious. The hosts were the most kind, friendly, hospitable people I've ever met. Definitely worth staying here.
