    This hotel was really more of a bed and breakfast. The room we had was so beautiful. It was quaint, decorated with sea glass from the local beach and paintings from local artists. I really enjoyed the sitting room and kitchenette. BUT, the best part...More

    Stayed in August 2015, we had a great couple of days. Hospitality was fine and breakfast enjoyable each day. Each room shares a bath, but no problem. Home was clean. Wi-Fi is free but poor connectivity.
