We felt very relaxed and spoilt after visiting this boutique hotel. It has a lot of character with the vast veranda which is great in the evening to take in the view whilst having a pre-dinner drink. The staff were very friendly, chatty and helpful. Our room was a really good size and very tastefully decorated. We ate in all...

From the minute of our arrival the hotel staff had one goal: be sure we had a superb experience. Enjoy the balcony at sunset, having a drink and relaxing. The hotel is well located if you are driving.

Traditional standards, at their best, are what we found at Falcons View. The warm welcome by the duty manager set the scene for days of exceptional service. A comfortable room; great view from it and the veranda; nice lounges with fine bar service; delicious breakfasts in the sheltered courtyard, and delicious dinners there to on warm evenings. The only let...
