Stunning location
Great location and beautifully kept grounds. The 2bedvApt was fine for our short stay but a little cramped for 2 couples if a longer stay. Adequate kitchen facilities. Great far walking to the the new cultural centre and eating and drinking areas.

8/10 Very good

We appreciated the friendly helpful staff who gave advise about the area and what to see and do. It was a good location, close to the beach and an easy walk to the shops and wharf. Although it was slightly dated we enjoyed the rocking chairs in the lounge.
