Lovely and quiet. We stayed in room 3 for 1 night. Lovely room with doors opening to small patio on harbour. Very clean and comfortable. Welcome chocolates and breakfast included. Hotel is located out of town in the port area, a 10 minute walk along the pathway to the town centre. Friendly hosts and a fantastic restaurant next door. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
