This delightful boutique hotel has an excellent location, being less than 100m from the sea. Indeed you can sit on your balcony (if you have one) and watch the Southern Right whales and their calves wallowing in the bay. The hotel is very attractive, complete with wooden shutters, large well equipped bedrooms, pretty garden and pool area. It is obvious that the hotel rooms, common areas and pool area have recently been refurbished, with the hotel conveying the 'shabby-chic' French look, which we found appealing. Breakfast, which was excellent, was taken across the road in a local restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating, again with views directly out to sea. Staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly and only too willing to arrange whale watching trips, advise on local restaurants, etc. We found at least six restaurants within 10 minutes' walk of the hotel and would definitely recommend the Fisherman's Hut. However, whilst we had a room in the main hotel with balcony, rooms in the annex have neither balconies nor sea views and parking on the hotel forecourt is restricted, so not all guests would be able to park there should the hotel be full. Hence our overall rating of this hotel being very good rather than excellent, since in all other regards it deserves the top rating.
