This hotel is well located within only a few minutes walking distance from the main business and shopping precinct as well as popular tourist areas. Its position on the pier provides an excellent view over the water and boat harbour. The rooms are well appointed and include all the facilities needed to do your own catering and laundry if required. Supermarkets are available nearby to purchase any food items. The only downside we found was with the positioning of the TV in the bedroom. Strangely, it was located on a shelf which was obstructed from view from the bed by the wardrobe. Only about half of the wide screen TV screen could be viewed. This could easily have been remedied by fixing the TV to the wall at the foot end of the bed. There is ample space to easily allow this. If management follow up suggestion, we would give it an 'excellent' rating.
