This hotel is well located and an easy walk to surrounding restaurants, shops and the ocean. The staff are pleasant and helpful. However, it is quite tired and poorly maintained. The rooms were quite dirty and the linen not at all fresh and stale smelling. It could do with a facelift which would warrant the cost of the rooms. The...

We chose Horizon to stay for our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised with the location as its a nice walk to town with great parking. So it's quiet and cozy. The fireplace is nice and the bed super comfortable. Breakfast is delivered in a picnic basket and was lovely. The friends who joined us were very happy with their room...

We loved our stay at the Horizon Inn. We were met by friendly staff who helped us with local restaurant choices and places to see. The room was roomy, clean, and attractively decorated. The bathroom gave you plenty of space to spread out your belongings. The kitchenette was a good size. The best thing was the breakfast delivered everyday outside...

The Horizon is O.K. the beds comfortable , the fireplace is cozy and the location was nice as there are some really good restaurants within walking distance. The continental breakfast arrives at your doorstep in the morning with a fruit, cereal, milk and a pastry which is very nice. There is a useful counter and a microwave as well. Out...

This is a beautiful hotel: it is scrupulously clean with huge attention to detail. Everything about this hotel is absolutely great. The staff are always very courteous and exceptionally helpful. The hot tub and patio area are always so clean and inviting and the fire is very welcome on chilly evenings sitting down there having a glass of wine!
