We chose this hotel after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. The location was perfect and we were upgraded to a room with a balcony and view over the marina. The staff were always friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We loved the unusual decor and furishings and little areas to sit in. Breakfast was very good in a comfortable and relaxing dining room. The only problem was the noise from the main road, so whilst we were pleased to be upgraded, if we went there again we would ask for a quiet room as we had a few disturbed nights.
