We stayed in room 4 which is spacious but unfortunately due to its layout there is only room for one bedside cabinet and reading lamp It is spotlessly clean with a view over the rooftops to the harbour but we feel that It should be advised on the web or in the brochure that despite the size of the room the bathroom is extremely small (the smallest we have ever encountered). The only seating in the room are two basket chairs which are quite uncomfortable to sit and read but a suggestion for this to be overcome would beto remove these two chairs and the chaise longue and replace them with two more comfortable chairs.
The duvet on the bed was very heavy duty (great in winter) and caused sweating during the night but due to the lack of a top sheet it was too cold for it to be slightly pushed down to make it cooler. The information pack states when towels will be changed and not as required but the problem is that there is no suitable place to get them dry except for a swivelling towel rail which either has to be hung over the toilet or sink, whichever is not in use and is hardly satisfactory.
A wide choice of breakfast was available but unfortunately your choice has to be made the previous evening rather than being able to make a selection at the time dependent on how you feel. It would be worth waiting a little longer to have this choice of an excellent breakfast. As stated in previous reviews Paul was extremely friendly and helpful but we only met Rita briefly on arrival.
More information should be given that the premises are not suitable for the infirm or disabled as there is the steep climb up the hill from the town and then steep steps up to the house. From the house there are also steep steps up to the car park.
Despite the negatives, overall we had a very pleasant stay.
