Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We love it,’ write regular Guide readers this year, after their fifth holiday at the best, and only, hotel on this tiny, car-free island. Alight at the harbour and stroll to the former country house surrounded by palm trees, while a tractor brings your baggage – ‘it’s all part of the enjoyment’. Bedrooms have no TV, no telephone, not even a clock (‘good Wi-Fi, though’), but many rooms, including well-thought-out family accommodation, have a balcony and ‘wonderful’ sea views. Take tea by the pool, play croquet on the lawn, head to ‘stunning’ beaches, or ‘just enjoy sitting in the garden’; a coastal path winds round the island. Take your pick of eating places: casual meals in the Mermaid Tavern and refurbished Ship Inn brasserie; sunset dinners in the Conservatory restaurant. ‘The food this year was probably the best we’ve had here – the sea trout was particularly enjoyable.’ Island life appeals to the youngest visitors. ‘It’s a great place for kids, with bunk beds, a children’s high tea, and the freedom to visit the village shop on their own.’ (Jane Thornton, ML)
