The location of this hotel was great, just 5 minute walk from the ferry/boat buildings and the shops. We were on the ground floor with the rest of our group and signs showing easy access for wheelchairs appeared in every passage. Odd though that the only way to the restaurant was up two flights of stairs and there were no lifts available. The pool looked inviting however the weather didn't brighten up for us to try it. Our room was comfortable and the no smoking signs on each door was nice to see. We were in a group of 14 and had been told to be seated by 1830 in the Reef Restaurant. This accomplished we watched as the rest of the guests were being served and we were left until about hour later before in filling orders! We had a choice for each of our three courses: Veg soup/prawn cocktail; roast lamb/T boast steak each with veges and jacket potatoes; pavlova/dutch apple pie. My wife and I chose the prawn/lamb/pavlova and thoroughly enjoyed each course except that there was too much lamb! Others that had different selections all enjoyed them too. We breakfasted two mornings to scrambled eggs, bacon, tomatoes, hash browns, baked beans and the best sausages I've tasted in a long time. A pleasant stay with pleasant and helpful staff. Worth a visit.
