    Beautiful location, stunning state of the art modern room with all the bells and whistles. We took our puppy for her first holiday and they were very accommodating! The view was breathtaking so there was no reason to go look for better views to eat! Thank you very much!

    There was a mix up with Booking .com room I booked. The lady greeting us and the woman to whom she referred us to resolve were both great and handled it well. Staff were delightful and made us most welcome. Excellent location with beautiful views. We only spent one night but enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.
