A most enjoyable stay with friendly and efficient staff. Libby the Duty Manager was very knowledgable and helpful in every way. The room we had booked offered a superb view of the sea and was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious.

The Helaina is great place to stay, its just fantastic. Location is on the quieter North Bay, with the town and South Bay a short walk away. Breakfast was great, and well presented. Day 1 was a Full English, day 2 smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and bagels. Keep it up guys.

The cleanest place I've stayed in.. breakfast is excellent. But beware of the stairs if your put at the top. The honesty bar is a great idea but lacks the personal touch of a staffed bar. Despite this I would highly recommend
