Great location on the river and in canal area. Warm, friendly service and the best breakfast. Upstairs rooms are modern and large, downstairs older style and smaller. Great value in the very special town of St Francis bay.

Lovely greeting from Anne. She brought us a nice pot of tea. Room was pleasant and clean. Not too much to do near hotel if weather not good but enjoyed our stay. The estuary could be reached in a couple of minutes. X

Spent a night of our honeymoon here! Lovely sea facing room, very comfortable with great views and easy accessibility to the beach. Ann was lovely and very helpful with advice on restaurants and things to do in the area. Great breakfast too. Would definitely recommend I-Lollo to anyone staying in St Francis.
