Would Gladly Stay There Again...
Upgraded to the New York room we were very happy with the comfort... spoil yourself & stay here to enjoy the 1880s way of life... great bed, lovely bathroom, a verandah from which you can breath in the sea air...

Love to return to stay longer.
I travel a lot. This accommodation stands out from the crowd. One word is quality and comfort. See website photos. An old building tastefully restored. May not have good sound proofing (room to room) if all rooms are full or have noisy guests. Very good value for money.

An elegant retreat at a reasonable price.
We were made to feel really welcome. This is a beautiful house, spacious, high ceilings and restored to its original glory. Wish we had planned a little longer here, but hopefully someday in the future.
