Check in was very straight forward from friendly staff. Free parking was also offered. Rooms were clean and the hotel is in a great location. We room was in. back separate from the hotel over the road. Not a problem. That was where the parking was and we there was a pool there also. Another pool was available at the main building which had fantastic views of the sea and mountains. Breakfast was served here as well. On our first day we had an early start to go whale watching. Reception arranged for us to pick up a lovely picnic breakfast at 6am. A lovely thing to offer. On the second day we had a lovely breakfast at the hotel and had great service from Michelle. Thank you Michelle. When we checked out we were allowed to use the car park beyond our check out time free of charge. Would definitely recommend and would stay again. Read less
