"Lovely" -- My husband and I stayed here for one night as part of our honeymoon. We were greeted very warmly on arrival and for the first time during our trip we were personally shown around and taken up to our room. The hosts took the time to go through a local map with us too and to make recommendations on things to do based on our interests. The room itself was gorgeous and perfectly put together and we had a view of the sea in the distance. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Parking was very easy and it was nice to be able to leave our car parked for the duration of our stay given that everything was easily within walking distance. We had a lovely stay and will definitely remember this hotel if we are back in the area in the future.
