A home away from home

Location: Great location handy to marina and beaches. The availability of free bikes was a bonus and made for easy access to nearby attractions and facilities.
Very comfortable bed and a well appointed room. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. A delightful garden setting with a pleasant and sheltered pool area. The "meet the guests" evening wine and cheese sessions were a nice gesture and very much appreciated.
