Beautiful hotel and close to water

Beautiful hotel with large rooms. Hotel is a 10-minute walk to restaurants and wharf. We had a wonderful and relaxing time. Great attention to detail from check-in to room features (soaps etc).

OK hotel if your not expecting a real Hilton exper

Pros: Location
Cons: Update the decor
Location: Too many to list, its a great town to visit, the local restaurants are amazing.
We booked expecting a Hilton quality room. Rooms was large but carpets are old and worn, bed is older and the overall quality was more that of a budget hotel.
