We arrived after a bike ride in from the Swartz Bay ferry. The front desk staff quickly arranged for us to be escorted to the underground parking bike lock-up. Then we were off to our room to prepare for a dip in the pool. Wrapped in fuzzy robes (provided by hotel) we headed down for a dip in the pool and a soak in the hot tub. The pool was stocked with towels, so we didn't need to lug any back and forth from the room.
The hotel is about a 10 - 15 min walk from the heart of downtown action. Close enough not to need a car (for an active couple), but far enough away from the noise of the traffic.
We ate in the hotel, which worked out well. I have celiac disease and there were many option to choose from. The menu was mostly seafood, but there were some other options. The meal was fantastic! We stayed with the seafood theme, and nothing disappointed. Oysters, prawns and fish dinners all served warm and delicious.
We had to be up fairly early to head back to the ferry, and the staff at the front desk quickly had us on our way.
