“Clean but basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

The hotel was well placed, very close to ferry port with a nice garden area outside. The room was clean and the shower was nice and powerful. We ate dinner at the hotel and the pizza was very poor - tasted cheap - I had fish and chips and it was disappointing but the breakfast the following morning was very tasty however.
I asked if there was a wireless connection and I was assured there was one in the bar area and so the girl who took my reservation gave me a room where I could pick it up. However, I never saw the connection but had to rely on a poor connection from the pub up the road.
I would return here due to its location but if a better choice was available, I would probably choose somewhere else.
