From the second we arrived we were treated like family. Escorted through to sign in told of the honesty bar shown to our room, couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome.

Our room was very pleasant with a large comfortable bed. Gorgeous views of the harbour and a continual changing landscape.. Breakfasts were delicious and the bacon particularly good. Our hosts were warm and friendly with a wealth of local knowledge that was invaluable to their guests. A lovely patio that you could relax with a drink to enjoy the scenery.

Three of us stayed there this week, whilst on a biking trip, so a twin and a single room. It's like a Tardis, really huge once you enter. The owners were great, the views of the harbour are amazing and the rooms were really comfortable and well laid out. Excellent all round!
