    Please note that Salamander Shores accommodation and restaurant is closed for substantial refurbishment. It should reopen in July 2018. The public bar remains open. The hotel is beautifully sited so after the refurbishment it should be the ideal holiday place.

    The best part is the view. The hotel itself is very old. Rooms are not likeable.
