We booked the room with sea view at the ground floor and it is quite a spacious room. The decor is not modern but it is comfortable and clean. Their breakfast time finish at 9.00am so we didn't eat there to be rushed to finish our breakfast. I have tried to booked their Sorrento Restaurant for dinner and didn't realise... More

We stayed two nights. Very quiet surroundings and within walking distance to the ferry, pub and the wonderful Ultimate Thule cafe. The rooms are clean and well appointed. Nothing too fancy but wonderful if you want to come home and rest after a long day exploring the island. We will definitely stay here again! Perfect for a nice, quiet getaway!

Stayed here as part of the sealink 2 day island tour. This is a great place to stay but if you are doing that tour then it takes an extra 30 minutes each way to stay here. Consequently we only had 12 hours here, so couldn't make use of the pool and mini golf as we would have liked to.... More

Really close to the ferry is an old building with a really small swimming pool. wifi connection didn't work in our villa, not properly clean (we found short hair in a bath towel). we couldn't have dinner cause the only place to eat was close and reception close doors at 7:30pm! the only pro was a good breakfast with view!

I had in one of the garden villa rooms at the rear of this hotel, and I really liked it. Each room is fully detached from the others, and has such an open and relaxed feel while being quite private. The lady at reception was very helpful, and I found my room clean and tidy, although the shower pressure wasn't... More

This place looked nothing like the images shown on-line. We have stayed at many 4 stars hotel and I would rate this at 1.5 -2 stars (at best). At despite the name, this place is a motel and NOT a luxury hotel in anyway shape or form. Breakfast was served until 9 am, which is another dead giveaway that this... More

Spent two nights in a sea front room. Spacious with a great balcony view, walking distance from the ferry terminal and several restaurants. The reception staff were friendly and the gardens and building well kept. Not sure if the rooms on the old half of the hotel would be anything to write home about but I'd definitely stay again either... More

Stayed in the villas out the back, well presented and quite roomy but very little water pressure. Not very central if you want to travel the island. Kingscote was a better option for what we had in mind. Would have preferred ocean views given the location.

Good location, walking distance from the ferry terminal and the pub/hotel. Nice rooms with a balcony and great sea views! Modern amenities, clean and comfortable beds. The hotel serves a buffet breakfast and has a nice pool with a bbq area.
