Convenient to ferry!
We stayed here to catch an early ferry the next morning. Perfect location for that! Even though we didn’t have an ocean view our room was large with a separate living area (couch & tv) and s nice view of the garden.

Bad experience
There was no hot water in shower, when I asked for a solution at 9 pm nobody was at the reception. Seafront Hotel was totally without staff and when I called number I found on a door, owner told me that having a shower at 9 pm was not his problem and I had to wait the day after for a solution. Room is not clean and close only to ferry, every wonderful place to visit on island is at least 70km. Every year i reserved about 50-60 nights in hotel worldwide for work and holiday and in this hotel I had the worst experience ever.

Very Good8.0
We walked up the hill from the ferry to spend the night before renting a car in the AM. Beds were very comfortable. Nice bathroom. Two restaurants a short walk away. The hotel is perfect if you are arriving on a late ferry or leaving on an early AM ferry but I wouldn't spend more than one night here because there isn't much to do nearby.

Good Choice if Staying In Penneshaw
Stay was exactly as expected. Room was basic but had the essentials. Location in Penneshaw can't be beat (the town is small anyhow) but it's very close to the ferry (where you can also pick up a tour or a rental car) and the few restaurants the town has.

Great Escape
Great location near Sealink ferry dock with beautiful ocean views. Very quiet and peaceful with friendly staff. Good-sized room, clean and comfortable. Very nice breakfast and restaurant on-site. Great place to explore by car but tour buses depart from doorstep if preferred.
