Perfect spot for a getaway in an ideal location. Cooking facilities and awesome views particularly from top levels. Staff are also fantastic. An easy walk to town and the closest eateries. The wharf is also within the kilometre and fantastic for catching bait fish.

The service is very friendly, the location is really close of the restaurants and just across the sea so you have a beautiful view on the sea and mountains from there. The only issue i had is that the toilet room was too small.
