We went for a single night as a family, two adults, two 16-y boys. The atmosphere was magic, with the island's ruggedness and isolation. We had time to hike for 90 minutes upon arrival and glad we did because the early check-out at 10am combined with the breakfast starting at 8am didn't left much time the following morning. According to us, specially considering the high cost, the check-out is way too early and should be at 11am (or even at 1pm to allow to get the lunch); with a check-in at 5pm it seems to us as enough time to do the rooms... It looks however that early arrival or late departure can be arranged; wish we had known that...
The diner was really excellent (Jigg's dinner and strawberry cake); the breadfast was good but not outstanding (the bread and jams were great however).
It rained late evening (very windy) and a little in the morning ... as we had hoped (adds to the atmosphere!). The staff is very kind as mentionned by others.
The boys were offered by Ed to kayak back to mainland if weather (wind) was ok, and it was; they really enjoyed that 75 min (6 miles?) part of the trip.
We all loved our too short journey on the Island
