Enjoyed the great breakfast both mornings, cozy clean rooms, and wonderful atmosphere throughout the whole inn. Very friendly innkeeper and staff. Would highly recommend a stay at the Inn!

Right close to the centre, this very friendly b&b was very refreshing because all the rooms are different and you can book the one you want. We booked the suite of two rooms. Interestingly the rooms were heated by a thermostatic log fire! Breakfast was fine for us on both days, but if anyone did not like what was chosed for the day or was more hungry.......although we were asked on arrival if there was anything we did not like. Anyway, I am sure thy would fix any issues... All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend others to stay there.

Beautifully maintained Victorian era home. Immaculate, loved having Wifi. Fancy breakfast, lovely innkeepers, and two superb restaurants, one within walking distance. (Cafe 2) The other, Walker's, was just as exceptional and we had a harbor moonrise view from our table.
