The only way is Barbs!

Where can I stay?

It may be the island’s oldest hotel, but The Crane which opened its doors in 1887, offers all the mod cons you need for a luxury holiday, as well as plenty of old-world charm, dark wood four-poster beds and ceiling fans – it’s no wonder Rod Stewart is a fan.  The Crane sits in splendid isolation on the south-east coast, with its cliff-edge location offering wonderful views over the pink-hued beach.  There’s a stone staircase which leads you down to the sea and glass lift if you don’t want to walk back up! Comprising 252 luxury residences and suites, the low-rise resort is set over 40 acres and boasts five pools.
