This was our second visit to On the Spot and I would recommend it to anyone. Inge makes you extremely welcome. The rooms are immaculate and modern with all the facilities you need. There is a nice sitting/sun bathing area to while away a few hours and the breakfast is excellent.

We were made to feel very welcome here for our 2 night stay. It is a bit out of the way so car is needed. However, a lovely B&B in a superb area. Very much enjoyed our stay and would return. Inge was very helpful in recommending where we should visit and eat.

We stayed at On The Spot for three nights and had the most amazing time. The rooms are lovely, spacious and modern, pool area relaxing and breakfast every morning was spot on, great choice of fruit, yoghurts, toast and hot food. Inge was so lovely, interesting to talk to and helpful. Could not ask for more!!
