The amenities and/or facilities may not be located at the hotel, but within a reasonable distance, and additional charges may apply for use.
This hotel seems very aware they don't need to try very hard due to their location, views and lack of competition. Basic comfortable accommodation but would have been nice to have a microwave for some self-catering. All meals need to be at the
local pub offering fantastic atmosphere and value for money but did not inspire to stay longer than a couple of days in the future. We had a problem with the bright external hotel lighting coming in our window at night. Staff dealt this the problems effectively but it seems likely we would not have been the only visitors to complain about this and it should have been permanently resolved with simple curtains or appropriate night lighting. Overall good experience but would not be good value if paying the full asking price.

Short walk from hotel
Penneshaw Hotel is a typical old fashioned country pub with the best views ever. They offer excellent value for money and quality meals. Great for a pre-dinner drink in front of the fire in winter or fantastic dining on the deck in summer.
