I visited this wonderful hotel, very close to Nelson's dockyard.

It was a first class experience, the rooms were lovely and immaculately
clean, the restaurant in the main building had amazing panoramic views
over the sea.

The breakfast and lunch restaurant is on the beach with
the water lapping up in front of you, the food, service and staff were
excellent.

Highly recommended

We came back a little later (mid April) than our stay last year in March. The staff are still very good indeed and the setting can be reasonably described as superb. Our beach cabana room was just as nice as the previous visit although more convenient for the breakfast and lunch restaurant. The boatman will still ferry you quickly around into the historic dockyard or to lunch at Catherine's French Restuarant. The beach is long, clean and great for swimming or paddling. Last year the evening meals in the main dining room were a gourmet delight but something has changed because the food is still very good but not quite up to the mark we expected. What has happened to the wonderful Swiss chef we met last year? He was not at the managers drinks party this year and could his absence have something to do with the fall in standard of cuisine? The internet access needs some work too (and the team know this). Access is not great except at reception but this is a minor quibble. So maybe the kitchen staff are tired at the end of high season but this apart it remains one of our favourite hotels in the world.

Room Tip: If you like to step out onto the beach go for the beach cabana rooms but book early they are the bes...

My husband and I recently returned from a short honeymoon trip to The Inn and we had the best time! It was relaxing and immaculate. The staff was super nice and always helpful. Christina gave great suggestions on where to go out for dinner and Wesley made our first night's dinner very special with champagne. The food at the restaurants was delicious and as we're the drinks. The pool/beach are was a little quiet but we liked that. There are some fun bars/restaurants close by if you want some time that's a bit more lively as well. We highly recommend and hope to be back one day!

Room Tip: We had a deluxe ocean suite - spacious and very nicely decorated.

Just spent 10 days at the Inn. One of the best all round hotels we have stayed in. Unusually, for us, would definitely consider a return. Excellent room, excellent staff, beautiful beach, pretty good food. Lovely weather. No children. What more can one say.

Room Tip: Any would do.

We went for a romantic getaway and chose this property based on a T&L package I found in addition to the reviews I read online. Everything was as advertised. Our room was beautifully furnished with an oversized balcony looking out towards the ocean. All of the furnishings were perfect for the environment and very comfortable. The breakfast and lunches were good and the dinners were terrific. The level of service and attentiveness of the staff was exceptional. While I would not come here with my kids, if you are looking for the perfect quite getaway for some adults you will have a very difficult time finding a better fit.

The Spa/Gym could use some help but we managed to get a great workout in anyway. After that, we pretty much talked ourselves out of anything other than enjoying the beach, the food and alot of R&R.

I was very pleased with our stay and would highly recommend the property.

Room Tip: We had room 31, a Junior Sweet. It has a spacious balcony that looked directly towards the ocean...
