This is a small, mid-priced hotel with the owners in residence. I was visiting family and decided to pay a bit more rather than stay at the budget end of the market.
The extra was easily worth it. The hotel is well presented with an excellent attention to detail. High threadcount sheets, great English breakfast (with emphasis on quality rather than greasy quantity), personal requests catered for (eg soya milk) and the hosts are friendly without being in your face.
There are lots of restaurants and the harbour within a 5 or 6 minute walk and yet the location is quiet.
Hard to find any negatives: the bed (double) could have been larger (although it was very comfy) and the walk from the harbour is uphill (not a problem unless old or infirm).
Overall I highly recommend and would stay here agin.
