The Tally Ho Inn is an exceptional place to stay. All is done and offered with the very best of taste and discernment, without forgetting to include the warmth, kindness and hospitality of the people who run it. I've been to the best hotels in various continents and I have yet to find one that comes close to this sacred little gem by the sea. The Tally Ho Inn is, without a doubt, in a class by itself. N.M.
