    Rooms are clean and well maintained, the only issue we had was the shower wouldn't hold its temperature, other than that we enjoyed our stay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Never got the chance to stay here. We arrived to book in, no one on site, rang the number to find out how to check in and was told our booking had been cancelled. We didn't get a reason or even a phone call to notify us of the cancellation before arriving there and no one was going to be back in town until the following week. Luckily there was a room at Port Denison Motor inn and the people there went above and beyond to look after us. Will know not to bother booking with sails on the main next time we visit.

    Easy checkin and checkout

    Checking in was by far one of the easiest and seamless experiences I've had anywhere. The room was also comfortable and clean.
