After a hectic few days at a family wedding, Jill and Chris's attractive and welcoming guest house provided a place to relax and also a good base for exploring the area. Quiet, friendly, clean and excellent facilities - and nothing was too much trouble, even my endless questions.

This hotel was nice and had a nice restaurant and pool. There was safe parking. The only three issues were that: 1. It is a bit far from the Sea so you definitely have to drive to the sea (they did say they had a complimentary shuttle for short distances so this may go to the sea but we didn't use it).
2. Our room did not have a sea view, in fact our room did not have any view, the view was onto a tiny artificial garden (exclusively our units garden) but surrounded by high walls and you wouldn't actually use the garden as it was small.
3. It may only have been present in our room on the Mezannine floor but as we were above the garage we could hear the car guards talking and this was annoying when trying to sleep in the morning.
We enjoyed our one night stay at the HoneyPot. Enjoyed talking to the owner. Room was small but very nice for the price point. Liked the coziness of the property. It was far enough away from the hubbub in the area to be peaceful and relaxing but close enough for an easy walk to the restaurants in the main tourist area nearby. This made it very convenient for us.

Great hotel, in the midst of shops and many restaurants. Good buffet breakfast, although not included in my room rate. No restaurant otherwise but large range outside hotel. As a single female, I felt quite safe walking around the local shops and restaurants until at least 9 pm at night in February. Plenty of security staff around in shopping area outside hotel day and night. Nice view from hotel window. A very pleasant stay.
