The Old Rectory

The heart of the hotel is in the Old Rectory building itself which houses the restaurant, bar and beautiful pool deck with sun lounges, with a back drop of the milkwood trees beyond. The hotel comprises 14 pool view rooms all of which are set in four blocks within the indigenous garden. Each room is light and airy and decorated in bright colours. While not huge, each room has its own large balcony giving a sense of space. There are an additional four garden suites which are larger, offer more privacy and have partial sea views, albeit over a wall for privacy.

The hotel is just a short walk from the beach with a sandy path leading down to a secluded cove and on to the well known Wedge Beach. The hotel can arrange picnic hampers for guests looking to spend the day on the beach or for those looking for more relaxed dinning experience during the day.
