Really lovely spot, friendly staff, particularly Mary who was a joy to chat to. Food excellent would definitely return on our next visit. Did not stay so cannot comment on the rooms. We were there in April off season so very quiet which was nice.

Went in for dinner on our last day on the island hoping to get into the restaurant unfortunately it was fully booked so we decided to order from the bar menu instead. The food was excellent, I had a venison burger - the best burger I've had in a long time. Would highly recommend!

Sitting in the sun-drenched bay window of this hotel sipping morning coffee, listening to the birds singing, gazing out across the inlet, it would be hard to find anywhere more perfect!
