My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights after our flight was canceled due to the blizzard in the Northeast. Wow! What a great place! Garston the owner was so hospitable and accommodating, truly a great host. This place has such an eclectic atmosphere.
We stayed in room number 3 which is on the main floor off the communal sitting area. Our room had a king size bed, room darkening drapes, walk in shower, flat screen TV and a very quiet wall mounted air conditioner. There is a electric hot water kettle with a selection of tea and coffee and a small fridge. The whole hotel was very clean.
The pool, which is not large (no need to be) was very clean and actually much warmer than the resort we had just left. There were several areas around the pool to sit and sunbathe that afford privacy due to the plant placements in the gardens. Butterflies and hummingbirds are there all the time.
Garston does cook breakfast each morning and has a small menu with different choices. Several kinds of bread, meats, cheeses, eggs, fruit and wonderful coffee, which I wish I could find here in the States!
The hotel is in a residential area and was a 10 minute walk to downtown. The taxi to the high rise area is only 11.00, however if you have a car, there is free parking.
Garston offered a ride to the beach daily after breakfast for anyone who wished to go and stay on Eagle beach.
All in all it was a delightful stay and we will definitely return.
