The two gentlemen that run this hotel/bar/restaurant are very nice and they serve good food, beer and wine.
They have been very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's walking distance from the Train and walking distance to the bus 61 to take you to the Ferry Port.

Nice small site and big surprise at reception - owners were English!!
Chose pitch number 35 (an omen?) and the sun came out and blue skies!! ...
... lack of proficiency with their language. I chalk that up to impatience, not hostility and I received plenty of that living in New York where the language barrier wasn't an issue. Outside of Paris I could not have asked for more hospitality or warmth from those I met.
I would awake to find myself in Portsmouth, England. Only a week and a half was left in my journey and I was looking forward to spending it in a country so closely tied with my own.
