Excellent hotel and very nice hosts. Carl and June made us feel very welcome. The location of the hotel is ideal for the harbour and all bus and boat routes to surrounding areas. Breakfast was excellent with good choice and freshly cooked, Room was very clean and tidy with a modern on-suite. I would recommend this hotel.

Had a brilliant 3 night stay in this lovely guest house. June and Carl are wonderful hosts. The room was very clean and had everything you could need. The breakfast was excellent especially the fried bread, best I've ever tasted. Am definitely coming back here again. Tracy sheppard.
