“Room for improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

This is a boutique hotel a moderate walk (uphill) from the seafront. We booked this as it has good reviews. Our room was clean & relatively well appointed, although it didn't feel much like Tuscany. The most unusual thing was having the sink in the main room as there was not room for it in the en-suite as this was tiny. I would say that this really let the room down as it was tired, with an old-fashioned toilet cistern & all of the pipe work on display. The shower cubicle was very small, I don't think that anyone of more than average build would be able to get in & still close the door.
The owners are new and have identified that some things don't work, I hope this is one of them!
Breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice and the area is quiet, yet reasonably close to the seafront.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stayed here for a few days & felt instantly made to feel welcome by Martin & Elaine.
The rooms are beautiful, very clean & the beds were so comfortable!
Breakfast was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble.
I would strongly recommend this hotel because it is a little gem!
