“Great Bed and breakfast”
Reviewed October 25, 2006

We were actually directed here from a more expensive and well known hotel chain. What a stroke of luck, holidaying on a fly drive from England we actually planned to stay for only one night but stayed for two. Brian and Stephanie are excellent hosts not forgetting little Jacob who was learning to walk during our stay . The rooms are smaller than those of the bigger more modern hotels but thats what you get for history. This is home from home. Nice touches are the complementary beer or wine with nibbles prior to going out for the evening. I can recommend "the Dish" a short walk in the shopping centre where you choose your own food and watch it cook on a large hot plate and I mean large. plus it was all you could eat. It was one of the places recommended to us on our arrival. The breakfast was more than enough again as much as you could eat, cereal, juice, coffee, waffles, muffins bagels etc . This hotel is handy for the trolley ,a bus that goes around the main museums and to the pier. 25cents per trip is excellent value and with commentary. One draw back was the uneven sidewalk some 100 metres from the hotel where my wife tripped and grazed her face, but back at the hotel we were offered medical aid and a lift to the pier to catch up with our friends. A real family hotel where the guest matters. Our next trip will include this place.

  • Liked — cleanliness,friendly welcome,complimentary drink and nibbles

The owners are doing the best they can with what they’ve got but sadly, what they’ve got is a bit too small (rooms). Liked the quaint furnishings, but felt a little claustrophobic.

There was an invitation to have a complimentary drink so we attended in the well furnished lobby and had a nice chat but didn’t get offered the drink.

My fiancee and I stayed here for three days and couldnt wait to leave. Apparently we got the only room that hasnt been redone. The room was VERY tiny and the bed was so loud and creaky I thought we would wake the whole hotel by rolling over. It was also the worst mattress and pillows I've ever come across.The bathroom floor was still dirty from the privious occupants when we arrived. The owners were very nice, so I must admit I feel a little guilty for this review but I felt like we had been misleaded into thinking this was going to be one of those faboulous bed and breakfasts, instead we felt like children sneaking into our parents house everynight trying not to wake up the owners who live with their baby downstairs. Spend your money somewhere else.

Having read the reviews on this hotel we decided to stay there while visiting relatives. The overall impression is very quaint but you quickly realize that it is lacking in a lot of areas. There was no coffee maker or hairdryer in the room (we had to ask) and space is very limited for storing suitcases, also the bathroom was very small. The owners are very pleasant but easlily forget who you are due to the quick turn around of clients and we felt that they are very stretched due to the arrival of the new baby. Not a bad stay but not really worth the money, all you are paying for is the location
