Amazing hotel, steeped in history. The Findlay room was probably the best hotel room we have ever stayed in. The hotel is in the perfect position for walking to the sea and enjoying the fabulous restaurants in Kalkbay

8/10 Very good

Lovely old majestic manor house with friendly and helpful staff. Within walking distance of some enjoyable restaurants especially fresh seafood eateries at the harbour. Only downside is that it's on a very busy road so a bit noisy if you looking for quiet.
