Calm, peaceful, understated, interesting, warm & welcoming. All staff terrific, All questions answered, information about the island at your fingertips. A turn down service every evening is a lovely touch, which you don't often get anymore. We will definitely return to the QSJ.

This hotel did not quite come up to the expectations I had from its reviews. We were in Room 207 which was facing towards a quite busy road - when sitting on our balcony there was significant traffic noise - but this was silenced by closing the patio doors. Wouldn't recommend Room 201 which would be right next to the...
