We were met by a young man as we got off the ferry. He claimed our luggage and delivered to our rooms. We walked on around the corner to the hotel. The hotel was reminiscent of a bygone era. We had two rooms on the 4th floor facing the street. The rooms were small, but were very charmingly decorated. The clopping of the horses added to the ambiance.
We ate dinner the first night in the dining room. The White fish was expertly prepared , as was the pasta. Breakfasts in the dining room was fantastic: Eggs Benedict and Huevos Rancheros.
We had dinner the 2nd night at the Pink Pony. They serve the same food in a more relaxed atmosphere. We also enjoyed Trivia Night.
