    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I enjoyed the quirky english pub accomodation, the breakfast in the restaurant was exceptional. Staff went above and beyond to help when we accidentally left behind a piece of medication. A suggestion to have a blockout blind needed on back door , would be great. Location good to beach and shops.
