The staff is warm, friendly and efficient. The rooms are clean and spacious. There is a whole wall of windows for natural light, and the room-darkening drapes keep the light out when you want it to be dark. We like the large desk with plenty of easy-to-reach places to connect, plus an upholstered chair and lamp for reading. The beds are very comfortable and include very large pillows for sitting up to watch the TV. The amenities in the bathroom include a hair dryer and excellent orange-ginger toiletries.
The restaurant at this hotel deserves its own review because it is really good. We ate dinner here, not really expecting much, and we were very impressed, beginning with the cocktails. We order the same martini everywhere we go, and the one we had here was one of the best we've had. Prepared by Jayne, it was absolute perfection. We ordered lobster rolls, and were happy to find they rivaled those in seaside restaurants for freshness and taste. There was hardly any mayonnaise and lots of succulent, sweet lobster. They come with a choice of sides, and we had sweet potato fries and onion rings, which were both excellent. Because the before-dinner drinks were so good and we didn't have to drive home, we opted for chocolate martinis for dessert (for the first time ever, I might add). Jayne has her own spin on these and they were fabulous!
The restaurant also serves a very nice breakfast buffet, including a manned waffle and omelet station, even on weekdays. The price includes coffee and juice, so it's not a bad price for all that food, and you won't need to eat lunch.
