We liked the location on the waterfront with a view over the bay. Off street parking was good and secure. We enjoyed walks and bike rides along the shore front. Fully serviced with cooking facilities was great. The bed was large, clean and very comfortable for a good night's sleep. Only dislike was the shower taps as they are not identified for hot and cold and one tap turns on in the opposite direction to the other with a loose securing screw made it too difficult to regulate the temperature.
