Staff was excellent, food was good but the restaurant was not open for all meal times. Not a huge deal since the are a couple close restaurants.

Great for relaxation and architecture nerds
As an architecture nerd, I loved the history, design, and stonework at The Old Gin House. We booked room 301, which was a lovely suite, with a balcony overlooking the water. Between the balcony and the flower adorned pool area, there were plenty of chances to sit back and relax. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was ample.

In need of restoration
This Hotel has so much potential. It is comprised mostly of dorm style rooms around a historic gin mill which has been converted to the hotel's reception and a bar area which was not in use during our stay. The pool was in terrible shape and I didn't bother. The furniture is really tired and in some cases battered. Lets just say that the entire place is due for a renovation and the historical gin mill should be restored.

2/10 Poor

Would Not Recommend
This Hotel was not what they represented it to be. It was old and not in very good repair. It is not in a accessible area. You must have a reservation made before 3pm to dine in an area that has no other options for eating. I was extremely disappointed in this hotel for the price and would not recommend to anyone.

Nice, somewhat isolated hotel.
The room was very pleasant. Sparsely furnished, as I like it, and spacious. You can get to the main part of town by following a steep path up a cliff. The food served across the road is mediocre, and at $27 for a bad dish of pasta, I don't want to do it again. Dining and sundowning is done on a pleasant patio with a great view of the setting sun across the bay. I would certainly want other easily reached dining options and access to the tourist options like museums and the fort.
