Bedrooms have good modern bathrooms and are close capeted. Furnishings are in pleasant plain shades, in no way frilly or country-house, but everywhere is spotless. A large sun-lounge sitting room provides promptly served freshly-prepared snacks, a more formal drawing room has chandeliers and a large fireplace, where a fire is lit each evening, the dining room has sea views and pleasant peach-coloured decor. The food is tasty, the service impeccable.
