This hotel is one block from the beach. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are huge. There are many nice touches such as granite countertops and tub enclosure, premium bedding, huge refrigerator. The staff is great and the owners are always doing updates to the property. Definitely stay here again if in the area.

Lovely hotel. Very friendly staff and extremely good price. Short walk from the beach, pier and harbour. The harbour has a couple of bars which serve food and drink. Opposite the pier and about a 15 minute walk are more shops, bars and eateries. Opposite the hotel is a church who open the doors to the homeless on Sundays, so... More

Very clean and comfortable. Despite our terrace being on the roadside it was still very pleasant to sit outside with a bottle of wine and some cheese and grapes bought from the farmers market on Main Street.

Dan and his team are fantastic. Front desk always helpful and cleaning crew very efficient and attentive. Love the location. So close to harbor and beach and a quick drive to state street or a short walk. I always stay for at least a week. Could probably rent a vacation rental but WHY when I can stay here!

A lodging with great exteriors, landscaping and the promise of Continental Breakfast if you don't leave earlier than when it's set out for grazing. The room we had was serviceable as 4 walls with 2 qn beds past their flip-date, obligatory 4 cup coffee maker with no coffee to make, ironing board and iron and Hardwood Floors, no rugs or... More

Hotel quite dated but very comfortable. Free wifi and free parking. Collect breakfast from reception, quite good. Air con a bit noisy. You could hear cars coming and going in the night. Good value. The seafront and beach are just around the corner. The town is a bit of a trek because of the railway line.

Stayed for two nights- very competitive pricing for the area. Great location- 10 minute walk to Stearn's Wharf where you can catch a shuttle to the downtown area. Also a 10 minute walk to the marina where one of the best restaurants is located- Brophy Bros for fish and chips. Sambos is a 5 minute walk. The room was updated... More
