This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The building is lovely and the rooms comfortable. The staff are all very friendly and provide excellent service. There are amazing sea views from some of the rooms. A lovely outside terrace by the pool where you can enjoy evening cocktails overlooking the bay. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic....

I cannot praise this hotel enough. The staff were all very professional. The superior room lived up to its name; very comfortable with a beautiful sea view. The restaurant is first class; perfect ambiance and delicious food. It should be noted that the hotel is located on a steep hill and parking in the hotel car park can challenging. I...

Very warm, friendly staff, with a second floor room providing a very comfortable night's rest. Room provided a good range of amenities, including good coffee, truly a rarity in a hotel room. Fine breakfast spread, and an enjoyable 2 nights stay.

Excellent hotel and superb food compliments to the chef. Very nice touches in the room such as a Nespresso machine ideal as a pure coffee lover. My wife also wanted to adopt the bear! Very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Only managed to stay one night but cannot wait to return when hopefully will be able to stay longer.

A hotel with beautiful views sitting on a hill. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. View from the room was wonderful especially as the moon rose. Nice appointments to the room. Parking can be limited. An amazing value for the quality of the hotel and service.
