Location is excellent. You can walk to the restaurants or use the many restaurants around Chantillys. Great view from the unit deck, you will see the entire harbour..Perfect view and excellent location. In the past we have stayed 10 minutes out of town so it was nice to simply walk to places whenever we wished. The rooms need an upgrade. Kitchen area was run down, sliding doors need a strong arm to open and close. Fan in our bedroom didn't work however the air con was fine.

Do not book this hotel! It is incredibly rundown and very dirty. Our bedsheets had yellow stains on them, our towels were filthy dirty with black marks on them, the property had exposed wiring everywhere and there were broken windows by the pool. We only stayed one night in the property and moved out the next day as we were concerned for the health and safety of our children and ourselves. The pictures advertising the hotel are very deceptive, they make it look 1000 times better than it actually was. We moved to a stunning apartment complex called The Terraces, which was beautifully maintained and exceptionally well run.

When we arrived we were told that they were still renovating and no room was available and they had transferred our booking to another hotel. Not happy! We chose this hotel due to its location and the hotel they transferred us to was out of town and not within walking distance to the Main Street which is what we wanted.
