                                          At reception, I was greeted by friendly staff and shown to our clean bright room with an outstanding vista of Doring Bay. It was a pleasant experience to listen to the sea during the night and enjoy the fresh clean sea air. The accommodation is very well equipped and I defiantly will return for a longer stay.

                                          Excellent position close to small beach and rocky shoreline. I love the sound of the pounding waves.The lights inside the room could be much improved, also a table and some chairs in the room would be great. A shelve in the bathroom would be useful.
