The Inn at Castle hill was built by Scots grain merchant Alex Calder in 1917 and it is most probably one of the most historic sites in this area. It remained in the family untill 1953 and was then renamed, by the new owners, to Sea Breeze Hotel up to the year of 1969. It was then converted to a nursing home called the Susan Chandler Home untill 1989. It was then bought by Carol and Ray Duff who restored the building to its former glory as a guesthouse. In August 2000, Judy Anderson bought and renovated it. It is now owned by Sue Melvill and run by Caroline Mwangi.
