Point of View
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The photos you'll find online for this hotel are not totally misleading, but more just that they were taken when the place was obviously first done up, and it's not been maintained very well. The outdoor deck area is a little shabby and not all that inviting, after all. And they don't even serve lunch despite the suggestion of being able to enjoy an afternoon sitting on the deck and enjoying the view of the harbour. But the rooms were very well made up, with a really great bathroom with a huge jacuzzi bath. But the reason I'm rating this place as "poor" comes down to this... when we went down for our breakfast, we found a pokey little breakfast room and chose the only table close to the window with a bit of a view (very poor design of where this dining room is!). But the lady serving breakfast had the TV just above our table on, and blaring loudly, and it was on a very religious sermon show. We thought it was very inappropriate for her to be subjecting her guests to this type of experience whilst they're trying to enjoy their breakfast. And she did not turn it off, or even the volume down, the entire time we ate our breakfast. Absolutely ghastly, and weird!
