Patrik, gb4 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Short walk to the beach, bus station and harbour (within 5-10 mins). Plenty of restaurants around. Rooms are bit on the small side (we had one with mezzanine level for the bed) and we didn't realise we'd booked one with a shared bathroom but otherwise it was just what we needed for our 4 days away. Bike & kayak hire is available for free at the hotel. There are kitchen and bathroom facilities and some toiletries for use by the guests. We found a hairdryer in one of the bathrooms but we'd brought our own any way. The rooms are kinda cool and all painted in white with wooden details everywhere. Really great value and we'd happily stay there again next year when we return for the GC Half Marathon.

Lovely hotel full of creativity, natural materials used all over, 2 kitchens, one on the roof terrace, you can cook and use the washer as well. Everything perfectly clean and tidy. A lot of love put into it. Really worth the value.
