This hotel has a lot to offer in terms of location, comfort and friendly staff. The room was clean (Room 8) but a little bit crowded. It was difficult to find a place to put the luggage stand while we unpacked.
My first disappointment came from ( my opinion ) false advertising. This room states it has a fireplace. In fact there is no place for a fire. What they're calling a fire place is in fact one of those electric thingies which rotate some sort of reflective cylinder in front of a light to give the impression of a fire. As far as I could tell, there was no heat involved. It also made a mechanical noise. I found this cheesy and very disappointing.
Next up is the Wi-Fi....or more accurately the lack there-of. It may be fine in other parts of the hotel but in Room 8 it is not worth the effort and frustration. The connection is constantly being dropped. Unfortunately for us we needed to research alternate routes to a small town nearby because we couldn't use the road signs due to road closures and detours. Obviously there are other ways to sort out navigation, but disappointment is made greater when an advertised feature doesn't exist.
To end on a positive note; the bed was comfortable, the Jacuzzi tub was marvelous and we had a great view of the harbour and glorious sun rise. Perhaps other rooms are better than the one we had, but I know Room 8 doesn't live up to the hype. The continental breakfast was quite nice.
