Reviewed 7 April 2016 via mobile

I stayed here for one night on a recent trip. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was clean and had an excellent view. The location is very convenient-within walking distance to the marina, restaurants etc. The hotel breakfast was great as well

Average in all respects. Hotel is somewhat dated and needs a facelift to get it modernized to today's standards. No toiletries provided in the room. Same boring continental breakfast each morning. Free internet access.

A terrific storm meant our flight was cancelled and we got bussed here for a free overnight stay. No disrespect to EasyJet but we weren't expecting much. Big surprise. This hotel handled 200 unexpected (and damp) travellers without blinking an eye. Friendly, relaxed, comfortable and very clean. Really nice en-suite rooms, reasonably priced bar, competitive food prices.

Toronto, Canada
Reviewed 20 March 2016

This is a decent hotel. There are a few things that make it a lower score. I didn't know old televisions like the ones in the rooms still existed. They are something from the 1980's. The absence of fresh fruit at breakfast is noticeable. There is some fruit, looks like it came from a can. No bananas or apples.

This is a nice hotel, very clean with comfortable rooms. Good choice of food at breakfast. It's on the edge of town (it's a small town) and just 10 minute walk to the centre. We had trouble connecting to the wifi at first, but when I asked at reception, the person who checked us in hadn't given us the information....

Throughout our stay the staff were extremely pleasant and always helpful, even to the extent of negotiating with a local car hire company for me!
