Excellent modern accommodation on an Island where most hotels appear to be fairly dated based on observations over three days .
Food is truly excellent (albeit perhaps menu could be perceived to be a little too complicated depending on whether you are in a pub/ restaurant mood - brilliantly cooked though regardless!)
Bar is interesting & good whiskey menu.
The service & general atmosphere in the restaurant is superb - everything remembered, attentive yet not invasive. Thank you Craig !
All round very good - don't be put off by the location near the ferry port - it's actually picturesque & not really a port - more like a big jetty in a bay & reflective of Island life.
Room 8 sits on its own & is great for privacy, a good view and lots of space.
