The inn keeper was so friendly and made us feel right at home, even upgraded our room and gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. We spent most of our time exploring the town and... More

From our welcome where Chris picked us up at the station until the time we left the beautiful town of Rockport, we had an amazing time. The accommodation was perfect! The room was perfect with an amazing view and we were made to feel welcome. Snacks and coffee are available 24/7 and the breakfast is absolutely fantastic. Would highly recommend!
