    The restaurant isn't open every day so we ate in the bar. We weren't disappointed. Everything was fabulously presented and beautifully cooked. Wonderful flavours and lovely service. Unhurried and friendly. Fantastic range of whiskies too. Would highly recommend.

    Just great! We had a nice and freshly renewed bedroom with a view on the Atlantic. There is a large free parking space, bar restaurant and also a nicer restaurant (Chef avec étoiles Michelin). Breakfast was very various. The staff was helpful and smiling.
