Friendly staff at check in, and extremely helpful. We had a deluxe room, with a balcony looking out on to a central garden, very tranquil. The room was very clean, there were ample clean towels, a selection of toiletries to take home (on top of what was already provided) or purchase larger sizes if you liked them. There was also a selection of pillows depending on your needs. We had access to 1hr free wifi each day,which was perfect as we spent each day exploring the surrounding areas. Yes you can pay for extra wifi though. We used the laundry facilities and it only cost $4 for the wash which included detergent and then $4 for the dryer. Both machines were clean and large in size. Both took about 30 mins. The dining room was very lovely, the menu catered for all needs, and the food was presented well and tasted great. They make great coffee too. It took about 10 minutes to walk into the main area of the town but having the ocean to one side of you and interesting buildings on the other made it for an interesting walk. The town has restricted parking, most parking spots were only 30 mins, so a walk was perfect. We highly recommend a small pub called "Splash Bar" with the sea as your view and great food at even better prices. We would stay at the Scenic Hotel again, and would highly recommend it to anyone.
