    Three bedroom apartment overlooking the harbor. Clean with comfortable beds. They offered coffee for one morning only and to get more we had to pay. Pretty balcony overlooking the water and quiet rooms.

    Fantastic apartment, lovely receptionist, very functional kitchen, clean, comfortable and has a lovely view of the harbour. No breakfast supplied, although you can purchase a hamper for $49 from reception. We would definitely visit again, although a little expensive.
