Many thanks for your review. Luckily we were not responsible for the name though in fairness you can see the harbour from upstairs.

The rooms at the bottom do not have a view. This was unclear when booking.

I am sorry that you thought you may have been misled about a view. After much discussion with our developers, on their advice, we went with a downstairs and upstairs booking description with the understanding that people would appreciate the possibility that there would not be a view from downstairs. I will go back to them with your review.
