Hotel's Favourite
First let me say that I'm super picky when it comes to hotels. Looking at online pictures the outside does not flash "new" or fancy but let me tell you, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The hotel was remodeled and the rooms are adorable, comfy, perfect for 2 or a family. It was clean and had a clean smell. With Covid, they replace your towels and things each day. There is no making the beds but we didn't care about that so much. Just happy to be on vacay. Staff took my temp and used health precautions to keep us safe. Did I mention the beds are super comfy? One of the nicer parts was the patio out our room. Many of the neighbors sat outside and we all chatted from our socially distanced spaces. Close to shops and restaurants. We will definitely be back!

This is a great location at the one end of town. We could walk to everything! Did not move the car once! The front desk staff are extremely helpful and friendly. No carpet in the rooms which we loved!!

I’m quite astounded by the rave reviews on this property as I would describe it mediocre at best. Firstly I should say that the staff are excellent and very friendly and they are the saving grace! The location is also excellent. Outside the property the maintenance is incredibly poor, rusting stair cases, concrete missing from some of the steps, concrete missing from the walkways. Booked the hot tub rooms - the sealant was missing around the bath tub. Tiles around the bath were cracked. The bathroom ceiling had clearly been replastered but the job not finished. Light did not work on the balcony The rooms were clean and pleasant but I think it is misleading to call this a boutique hotel.

We had an amazing stay. Room was comfortable, clean and perfect. Staff was so nice and welcoming and on top of everything. Don’t listen to the Kens and Karen’s on the reviews, these people will complain about anything.
