While most of the negative points of the reviews for this hotel are true-yes, it is not fancy, yes it could use an upgrade, yes it could be cheaper, yes there are STAIRS- the fact of the matter is that you could not spend the night in a more magical location. We were out and about and exploring till late into the night-we had a full moon which made the whole evening of trails and pathways feel like something out of Harry Potter, ate a lovely dinner and came back to the room exhausted and slept like rocks. In the morning at 6am sharp the melodious cathedral bells began to clang. They are LOUD being right in front of out terrace, but they are BEAUTIFUL! We got up, drank a bottled water in our pajamas on the terrace, listened to the bells and watched the sun come up. What a beautiful beginning to another day of adventure. People who complain about this kind of noise have forgotten to look for the beauty of new experiences.
When we return, and we will, for we were there on the one weekend that the tide did not rush in, we will stay here again, smile at the awkward little room at the the top of the stairs, but grin from ear to ear at the view off the terrace and the greeting of the cathedral bells.
