A short stroll from the Catalina Express, a quaint entry gate invites you past the under cover community lounge area into the check-in desk. The staff were friendly and happy to talk about whatever subject arose. The bed was deep and comfy, turn down service rewarded us with a small but tasty pillow chocolate. The wine and cheese afternoon was a great way to meet other travellers, and the breakfast was decent and plentiful. A great base to explore the rest of the island from.
