This was one of the highlights of my tour of the Big Sur.
The Inn was perfect.
Settled on the edge of the Pacific with a beautiful wind swept beach at your front door this stay was enhance by a beautiful large clean room with cosy gas fire heating.
I got up early on the morning of departure and had a fabulous walk on the long beach where my only companions were the waves that crashed at my feet and the seals that lazed on the rocks directly opposite the Inn.
The walkways in place above the beach are superb and totally in keeping with the lovely setting on the seashore.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful.
The only downsides were
(a) the breakfast where the muffins and bagels were the mainstay but even still were very tasty.
(b) the only resteraunt nearby (300 meters) closes very early and we were made to feel very much like an inconvenience to themarriving at 9 PM.
The resteraunt itself felt a bit amateurish in the way it greets guest but has in its defense however a fantastic fruit Ice cream which was the nicest I have ever tasted.
Outside that with nothing else to do in Cambria (not in the town) we had to have a early night.
For the loaction comfort and hospitality I would crtainly stay here again but I would probably drive into Cambria for a good resteraunt.
