          This hotel is lovely. Set in an old house, with an extension, it's homely but stately at the same time. Next to the castle ruins, it looks out over the cliffs, which even in the poor weather are stunning. Surrounded by greenery, this location is...More

          Hi, BeautifulBC-7. What would you like to know about this accommodation? Just wondering if there are any taxis that could take us into town from this location as we won't have a vehicle. We have a driver but he won't be on duty in the evening. Are most of the pubs and restaurants in the actual town? And is the pub in the hotel good? Live music? Thanks!
