All our rooms are complete with luxury toiletries, tea and coffee-making facilities, free WiFi and a hairdryer.

We're lucky enough to be located in the centre of this bustling harbour town, which means sometimes it may be a little noisy during peak times and events - which are out of our control. 

Please note, there is no air conditioning in the rooms. 

We welcome well-behaved dogs into a few, specially selected, rooms at an additional charge of £15 per night, per dog. If you are looking at bringing your dog with you please give us a call to ensure you are allocated the correct room.
