We tried this hotel with a living social deal, and felt like it was a good value at $249 for boat transfers for two plus one night's rooming on the night of St. Patrick's Day Sunday. Location is great, especially for walks, which we did many times over our visit. We did not have a view room, but enjoyed the courtyard view and openable window (kids at the laundry downstairs were a little intrusive, but it didn't last long). Our room was spacious, with nice layout, king sized bed, and sweet little fireplace. Staff at the front desk was fine, check in and checkout were uneventful. Bathroom was just ok ... Water pressure in the shower and shower temp were great. However, it needed a bit closer attention to cleaning in the bathroom ... Seemed like a quick inspection would have solved for the dirt and hairs we observed (we are a bit picky about these things). No big deal, and easy to fix. Continental breakfast was a very nice touch ... Yogurt and bagels and more than just a stale sweet roll, which we really appreciated. Nice place, good rest, nicely private, and we'll definitely be back.
