I arrived in an unfortunate situation, as my father had been taken to hospital and was very poorly. The staff (and guests)...

I can't rate this little hotel highly enough. Although a little dated in parts the hospitality & ambiance was not, very welcoming & professional. Two superb room upgrades on arrival, we felt a little spoilt ;) Wonderful first impression of Cape Panwa and well worth a stay. Breakfast was amazing, you could dine for over an hour with no pressure....
