Great food and people. The edgewater was within walking distance of the city center, an Art Deco area, repaired during the 30's earthquake. Free wifi, laundry facilities. I just wish I'd had more time to explore this area.

Hello Hotrodgurl. Thank you for taking the time to review us and you comments are very much appreciated. The shower heads are made by Metven.

Two very comfortable nights here. Accommodation well situated for the town centre. It is very clean, well presented, nice little touches and really cannot be faulted. A spa bath is a nice extra and to be able to sit out a great addition
