Honeymoon dream
We stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff were friendly. The room was amazing. They gave us a free spa voucher and champagne. The views were spectacular from the room. The air-con, under floor heating, and the heated towel racks were a huge plus since it was wintery and cold during our stay. The hotel has everything you ever need within walking distance. The breakfast vouchers were an amazing idea, we loved going to Café Mario at the waterfront, their food was excellent. Il de pain had the most amazing tarts. Over all, very impressed.

Very Good8.0
Hotel with an Interesting History
Received a very warm welcome although we were very early. Left luggage in the store room and spent the day out and about. Although the hotel does not have its own restaurant the Bakery next door is to die for, especially breakfast. The hotel is very neat, tidy and very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights with them

Beautiful boutique hotel with all mod cons
Beautiful boutique hotel. Great service and advice from the hotel manager. Loved the choice of cafes for breakfast. Best sunsets watched from room or even from the bath.
