Matress too firm
We’ve stayed at Captain Cook Hotel multiple times but we were a little disappointed with the comfort of the double beds in the room. Despite the overall cleanliness and pleaseant decor of the hotel, the bed was too firm for my liking and left me with a sore back in the morning. I understand that personal preference for mattress firmness can vary, but I believe that the bed in my room was not up to the standard that I have come to expect from a Hotel of this caliber. The staff was friendly and helpful, and location of hotel was convenient but the mattress discomfort and out of order jacuzzi left a negative impression on my stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Honestly, we had a great time, but I think we encountered some kind of entity that was in our room as well as us. As strange as this sounds, we woke up and my shoe had been moved from the floor to the desk and it was filled with water…like to the brim. It was the strangest occurrence. I later read the hotel was haunted so I’m assuming it was a prank…nothing scary, just very strange. We would stay here again because we are so amused and curious about the shoe incident.
