“Beautiful & Romantic”
Reviewed 24 September 2008

What a fantastic boutique hotel. Its got about 6-8 rooms and has the best views of the Heads you can possibly get as the hotel is effectively on a cliff overlooking the heads with the ocean rolling in. The furnishings are as good as it gets - clearly the owners spend a LOT of money decking the place out from the beautiful lounge, great patio / balcony ares (with plunge pool & loungers) all the way throughout the hotel. The room are a decent size (not huge by any means) but the views and balcony and again fantastic furnishings thorughout just made it for us. Never actually wanted to leave the hotel as it was luxurious! Breakfast was included, which was lovely, but there is no dinner cooked on site so you have to make do with take out or going don to the town which is about a 10 minute drive away. People are really nice, friendly and helpful with nothing too much for them to do for you. Beautiful place for a honeymoon or just somewhere to go to feel completely spoiled. Brilliant.
