The location was very convenient for our purposes and the facilities suited our short stay. Parking was at the door of our unit. The meal was quick and enjoyable and a very reasonable price.

The back-lit 2 foot high Argosy Hole sign was turned off at 9-30pm on Saturday night - and I found it difficult to find the place when I returned from dinner in the city centre. For people going out for dinner - then turning the sign lighting off at 10pm would make it easier to see when returning from a long dinner - like I had.

Overall it was very good. Good value for money, excellent breakfast, and so close to the ferry terminal. The only problem was the bed was very hard which meant I had very little sleep.
