Harbour House Hotel

Harbour House Hotel


Harbour House Hotel Location Map

Situated in the heart of the historical village, Harbour House Hotel has been modelled after its original architecture, a thatched roof seaside manor house built in 1920. Being perfectly located above the Old Harbour, the hotel’s understated luxury is offset by the soothing surrounds of the ocean.

The restaurant, situated in the restored Manor House, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner inspired by abundant local produce and fresh ingredients.  The beautiful Pavilion provides an alternative relaxed outdoor dining area where guests can enjoy their breakfast, lunch or dinner with a view of the harbour and the gentle sound of the water fountain in the background.

The hotel’s crowning glory, and arguably the most enjoyable whale watching site, is the magnificent 18 x 4 metre infinity pool. Just a stone's throw away from the sea, the pool enjoys prime position at the front of the hotel, offering uninterrupted views of the sea through glass wall surrounds and modern, sophisticated finishes.

The Harbour House Hotel consists of the restored Manor House with intimate Romantic Rooms, all with views over the garden and pool area. Rooms on the upper level have a Juliette balcony with spectacular views of the ocean.

The New Wing has spacious air conditioned studios with a lounge area and a kitchenette with is equipped with basic appliances.
