Dating from 1859, this engaging hotel still takes pride of place in the heart of Robe, just metres from the town beach. Built by a Scotsman, the Caledonian offers accommodation at an appropriately canny price – particularly in six upstairs rooms that match old-world furniture with trim decorator touches. Alternatively, there’s the Seafront Cottages – self-contained havens with bright living, kitchen and bathroom spaces, as well as two loft bedrooms. The ultimate option is Splash, a lavish three-bedroom apartment with all the indulgences and entrancing, absolute-beachfront vistas. Renowned for its convivial bars and acclaimed dining, this is a pub with a rollicking past and a vibrant present.
