Spent two nights at this hotel and the location is great. We were situated on the side street, but still had a view of the sea which we really enjoyed. Very close to all the shops and restaurants. A pleasant place to stay.

We spent two nights here over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in room 2 and it was nice to see the recent renovations and upgrade. The room was much larger than we expected and we had a lovely big balcony overlooking the harbour, which we took full advantage of to enjoy afternoon nibbles and drinks in the... More

The unit which was recently redecorated was very clean and bright and the view across the harbour was superb.

We had a voucher so we came here for the pizza deal. We ordered our pizzas and had a drink each. I really wanted a Bloody Mary after my wine but when I asked about cocktails the barman said they don't do them. I think that's a bit of a shame when you already have a lot of spirits available...

Very friendly staff, lovely room with modern furniture and great views over the harbour from its own balcony. I didn't eat downstairs but had a coffee, which was great. No noise from the restaurant in the evenings, either. Excellent establishment and a wonderful place to unwind. I will be back!!

So we had booked a night at this place, firstly it's a bar with a few rooms not a hotel. The room was clean, the view was OK if a little old and in need for updating, tiny balcony with the view. It is well placed in the town just needs to update the rooms a bit.

Thank you for taking the time to review our premises. You are correct we are not a Hotel as we only have 4 rooms overlooking the Harbour. This amount of rooms does not qualify us as a hotel.
