A home away from home

Location: Great location handy to marina and beaches. The availability of free bikes was a bonus and made for easy access to nearby attractions and facilities.
Very comfortable bed and a well appointed room. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. A delightful garden setting with a pleasant and sheltered pool area. The "meet the guests" evening wine and cheese sessions were a nice gesture and very much appreciated.

Great Hotel, Fantastic Staff

Pros: The friendly staff, great location and comfortable bed.
Location: The hotel is within in easy walking distance of the harbour and State street.
The hotel was easy to find, clean and in an excellent location. The staff were extremely helpful providing great advice regarding local sites and road trip options as we left. It offers guests a wine and cheese snack in the afternoon and a great breakfast to start the day.
