Great location, good quality hotel room. Only disappointments were the combined shampoo and body wash (hate that !) and there was no space to open our luggage.

Thank you for staying with us and your review. We are trying to become more eco friendly and save the wastage of single use plastic. All units are equipped with luggage racks

Extremely clean and tidy. Great views of the bay. We were stranded because of flooding and the moteliers were obliging and very understanding and allowed us to remain in our room until we were able to leave.

Great location. The room was very big and clean but heating only in the living areas. Very little staff at checkin/checkout. Not the fault of the managers but when people upstairs want to be noisy at 1am it defi itely affects your stay
