Birthday trip
Excellent hotel and would love to go back. Unfortunately the 1885 restaurant was too cold and the air conditioning for the kitchen was very noisy which rather spoiled our enjoyment of the evening. All the staff were very helpful. We could have spent our 3 day trip without leaving the hotel.

Wonderful 1st class historic hotel
The hotel itself is beautiful, right on the water. Our room was very nice with a balcony overlooking the ocean. One of my favorite things in the room was the oversize deep bathtub perfect for soaking after a long day. The service was excellent. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone. The bed was very comfortable with excellent sheets, pillows and comforter. I have no real complaints at all. I would stay here again.

Four nights stay family vacation.
Lovely hotel & we had a pleasant stay. The only thing is that there were only towels for 2 people & we had booked for 3. We have to constantly ask for more towels. Other than that the staff were very friendly & the breakfast was wonderful.
