Accommodations were good, in a good location near MONA, good parking at door to room, friendly and helpful onsite staff - marred only by the 8 PM cancellation of our rooms on evening of our pre-arranged late arrival at 10 PM - which required 1/2 hour to sort out even though rooms were readily available.

Lovely location next to the river. Room was clean and had all we needed. Bed was a bit hard for my liking. Lovely meal at the restaurant. No problem with noise even though location is near the highway.

Handy location, very scenic on the river. Facilities feel a little tired and in need of updating. We actually had a water leak in our room during a storm. We also had an unpleasant room service meal experience. Staff were very apologetic and helpful and the overall cost of the stay very reasonable but a little disappointing in terms of overall stay.
