Stayed as a couple overnight and had a wonderful time. Room, although a little dated was large and very clean with ensuite bathroom offering bath and shower .The bed was extremely comfortable and the room provides tea and coffee making facilities .The best feature, tho, was access to a fabulous balcony area with amazing views of the bay very nice!!!...

Three adults shared a family room on the second floor. Very large room, great ocean and town view. Good shower. Staff very friendly and helpful. Does have a lift which was a bonus. Breakfast good too.

We stayed here recently. The bedroom was 1970's, very tired. Mattress was lumpy. But the public areas were very nice, breakfast good. The location was very good and close to the town hub. Would come back again!!!
