Not too far from the Main Street. The staff were extremely wonderful during our stay as well as the rooms being comfortable. The only downfall was there being no kitchen sink only the bathroom sink, and it was too small to fit my water bottle under!

Thank you for your comments which are appreciated. We are about 6-8 minutes from town which keeps us out of the club noises in the evening. We are also directly opposite the main ferry terminal which guests really appreciate
