  • 8.0.Very good

    The parking was an inconvenience, it was not valet understandable given COVID. The system was to pull up in the small lane and ring for them to open but it was hard to get through and time consuming. On exit, the reception would open the gate but by the time you got in the car, it would close. Again you had to call if you were lucky to get through

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location poor room

    The room was disappointing for the price. It was small, stuffy (even with AC), dated and not well maintained. I had to squat in the shower to wash my hair and I'm not very tall. That said, the staff were excellent, the view of the harbour is very nice and the location was excellent with loads of small eateries and hidden gems

  • 8.0.Very good

    The location is great, the hotel over all is great. TV is small and remote didn't work properly. Fridge did not work but it was replaced the nest day, good response. What let it down was the room location, woke up to roller doors opening, driveway alarms, rubbish truck and bins. Very noisy side of the hotel.
