Location is great,staff are friendly, rooms are spacious. A little pricy for uncomfortable pillows, average mattress comfort & a heater that is very noisy when it goes off. Hearing your neighbours conversation interesting, but not what you want to hear. Only stayed one night & for the price would find another place on our next visit.

Very clean with spacious rooms. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Great location, one block from the harbour boardwalk which has many restaurants and attractions. We really enjoyed the rooftop patio with lots of furniture and a great view of the harbour. We would definitely return and recommend to others.
