8/10 Very good

a beautiful seaside village well off the beaten path. I don't recommend the shortcut thru the mountains unless 22 miles of 8 ft wide road appeals to you. The couple who own and operate old cable house are outstanding. Breakfast was excellent, they have a nice little bar, and they make you feel very welcome. It is a couple hundred meter walk to get to "downtown"...very small. My only criticism is the hardware, doors, fixtures, etc. are well used and in some cases loose.

The pillows could use replacing, as they were quite flat. Other than that it was a great value. The innkeepers were very kind and welcoming. Dining was delicious

8/10 Very good

Not what I chose.
The owners were great. However we were given two separate rooms upon check in. One with a restroom and one without. This was not what I had chosen. It was terribly inconvenient to have to get up in the middle of the night and unlock my door, go across the hall and unlock restroom door each time I needed to use the restroom.
