The hotel was welcoming, comfortable and the owners friendly. We enjoyed our stay and a good breakfast. The views are beautiful and the location great both for the town and for the peninsula walk. We would definitely visit again.

There are several small motels and hotels in town but this is one of the best. It has a B&B feel and the breakfast in the morning so great. Nice location on the bay with good views from the front porch area. Room was clean...More

Stayed there just 1 night but had great time. Jen and Warren were lovely hosts, enjoyed a champagne (or 3) with them. Such fun and beautifully renovated hotel. Would definitely stay again looking forward to it

We stayed one night and greatly enjoyed the hotel. Our room looked out to sea and was very comfortable. Our host was very helpful. The bed was comfortable, heated floor in the bathroom and breakfast was excellent.
