When I first arrived, the age of the building had me concerned... however the room was clean and comfortable, and the toiletries were eco friendly. There is no elevator, and noise transfers quite easily between the rooms and the hall, but there is plenty of parking and the staff were friendly.

We met a friend here for a very late lunch, we were the only people in the bar. The server was very nice and food was served quickly. We tried the clubhouse and the chicken pesto melt, both were average, but better than regular deep fried "pub" food. I am sure they get a lot of traffic here in the... More

Thank you for your review. We have a great place with comfortable rooms & great food. I apologize about the chicken burger description. It should state that it is only on the beef burger not the chicken burger. We hope you return to our hotel or anther BW in the future. Have a good week. More

We stayed one night while touring the Island. It was only our second day of nice weather so the pool was a great bonus. Check in staff were great with information and were very friendly. The breakfast deal in the restaurant was perfect for a mid size breakfast.

Very convenient, great staff! Good food! And a great place to unwind and have a glass of wine in the lounge after a long day! Restaurant opens super early so you can have breakfast before those early meetings!

Would have given this a much higher rating, but for the awful shower. Excellent staff, great pub, and nice little restaurant. Dinner in the pub was a treat, with the large selection of beer, and broad menu. However, the shower seemed designed to be awful: no door, so it is just open; odd plastic cover on the drain, with sharp,... More
