There is no doubt that the location of Captain Flander's is second to none and the free bus pass and beach pass add to its charm but the lack of facilities regarding refreshments is sadly lacking . We were booked in for 6 nights having trekked all around E. Canada and we looked forward to relaxing in a quiet setting and this we did. Unbeknown to us 'Up Island' is 'dry' and that was bit of a shock but of far greater concern was the lack of liquid refreshment available to guets, a story about state law + hobs & ovens....why not purchase an electric kettlt for heavens sake? Even the promised bottle of water, (see web site), failed to show and we had to ask to have the bathroom cleaned after 3 days. . We'd been spoilt in Montreal and Toronto with open-access to the kitchens ady & night and found this a difficult pill to swallow. M.V is an interesting experience and the night skies are absolutely fabuloius. The free bikes were brilliant and shuttle bus drivers couldn't be more helpful, but Captain R. Flanders' House needs loving!
