Room was clean and well presented. Bathroom was good with lovely powerful shower. Heater in room was new and very efficient. Hotel itself was a bit tired. Did not use the restaurant, but it was full of people in the evening.

The room was lovely, clean and neat and spacious with an incredible view from the little back deck straight out onto the water. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food from the onsite restaurant was very tasty. The room was exceptionally reasonably priced for a gorgeous space.

Welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff on arrival and our room was decorated with simple yet home like cushions and accessories that made it feel beautiful. The view of the water was great and the Restuarant right next door was not only convenient but very nice meal! Staff were also very quick to respond when a PowerPoint wasn’t working and had it fixed within minutes. Thankyou for the great stay!
