Perfect location with brilliant views from the bar and deck,close to the beach,very clean rooms,good breakfast choice.Lady serving breakfast was very polite.Liked the 8-30 breakfast bell it reminded me of being at school although i thought that their was a fire on the first morning.If you want a chilled break this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Some rooms have sea views,ask when booking.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. Our room was overlooking the sea, very comfortable and very clean.
Breakfast gave us a good choice of cerials and a good choice of cooked portions, be it scrambled egg on toast or a full english, and was well cooked and very hot, and set you up for the day. The staff were very friendly friendly and helpful with any questions you may have. We were able to get anywhere on the island that we wanted to visit, by bus, so that we arrived at the hotel, parked the car, and did not use it during our stay. We have already booked for next year and would not hesitate to recomend this hotel to any one.

Room Tip: Try for a seaview room if possable, but from our experiance we would imagine any room would be very clean and comfortable.

This was our 16th holiday with Anne and Bob.The hotel improves each time we visit. The food is excellent. The care and service is superb, we are treated as one of the family. We love the island, but the hotel is an added bonus. We recommend "The Deck" to eat, as it offers good value and a varied slection of meals, in a lovely surroundings. We've already booked for next year!

Thanks for a lovely stay. We haven't been to the island for many years, so this was a real trip down memory lane. The hotel is in a perfect spot, close to the beach and the old village. The garden is beautiful with uninterrupted views out to sea. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and there was lots of choice at breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful and the whole place has a relaxed, home from home atmosphere. We made it down to breakfast every morning, but only just - maybe it could be extended to 9.30am? We're not good in the mornings!

Room Tip: Front balcony rooms have wonderful views
