“Comfortable, clean and welcoming”
Reviewed 29 May 2007

We booked this place through the tourist information centre in the town who were very helpful and even rang them for us! As the owner was out, the door was open and the key was in our room door-very trusting! We took our car back into town to buy food which we cooked in the well equipped if not modern, kitchen and sat down to watch a film with the other guests. We all agreed that it was a great base to explore from and we swapped stories about whale watching etc. A small but perfectly formed place with a friendly owner and a really pleasant feeling about it. There is a hot tub in the garden too which we didn't sample but I'm told was very relaxing!

Stayed March 2007
