I made the decision to book the Belmont as I loved the look of the building's charming exterior and because of the excellent reviews. My husband and I usually prefer larger hotels and are not fans of the guest house type of hotel so were a little dubious. I think I made an excellent choice. The hotel isn't big only having 13 rooms but in no way does it feel like a guesthouse. Our room had a view of the sea from the large bay window and although overlooking the street, was quiet at night. It was clean and well decorated with a very comfortable bed and, what is usually lacking in hotels, plenty of clothes hangers! The hotel is clean, tidy and beautifully decorated in a style that befits and compliments the building with good size lounge, bar and restaurant area and parking space, which is important and is within easy walking distance of the beach, coastal path and town. Breakfast at the hotel has a large choice' they seemed to have thought of everything you could possibly want, where you can help yourself, the cooked breakfast is very good, the service was swift and staff always pleasant. We only ate at the hotel on one evening but the choice is good, as is the food, with good portions and very reasonably priced.The hosts are charming, helpful and always cheerful and friendly. If I should return to the island I would not hesitate to book The Belmont as we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
