We had a most enjoyable stay at this hotel. The rooms are spread round the grounds in cottages with spacious bedroom and sitting room. It is small and personal, only 36 rooms. The situation on the beach is superb. The food was excellent as was the service. The staff are very attentive and all guests are called by their first names! The original house, where the bar and main restaurant are, was the home of Fanny Nisbet who married Nelson. Thursday barbecue and a bit of dancing to a four man band was great fun. The local Botanic gardens are well worth a visit.
