I am a local but saw a TravelZoo special and was curious after lots of hype. I have to say I was totally pleased. Not only is the location terrific, but the room is well thought out, well decorated with Olsen prints EVERYWHERE, and the kitchenette could be useful with surprisingly good quality cutlery. Check-in was friendly and efficient. The pool was lovely, with the fun of being able to stand in the pool and look up and down and below at Chapel Street, and the sundeck chairs oh-so-comfortable.
A great place to stay even if you live around the corner for a total holiday feel.
