Took 25 minutes from the ferry terminal to the hotel which wasn't too bad. It's perched up on a hill which provided a lovely landscape view. The twin room on level 1 was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty extensive and food was plenty. The pool was clean but it lacks sun lounges. There was only 2.
The front office staff were very pleasant and friendly. They were always available to help with any inquiries and with arranging of ferries or the transport to town.
Being on a Sunday morning, the breakfast restaurant at the lobby was extremely busy and walking around the tables to get to the food station was slightly inconvenient, having to brush against diner's chairs or their backs !
Overall experience was generally good but the hotel is in bad need of an upgrade. Looks like a very old establishment. Like the title says, Cheap and Cheerful. You get what you pay for.
