    A beautiful hotel with great atmosphere, food, location, comfort and staff. A relaxing, enjoyable and memorable stay. We will certainly return in the future, probably to enjoy the open fire on a winter break.

    Perfect location, walk from ferry. Excellent restaurant and bar. Friendly helpful staff. Standard and even "superior" rooms fall short. Definitely request the remodeled waterfront rooms, worth the extra charge.

    Beautiful view from our Bay view room and excellent location in the center of the promenade action. Staff and food were very good. The hotel is in good shape but remember it is old! Walking to beaches and meals was very comfortable!
