Great location and great building. I like the look of it. Also the pool very nice, a lot of families so best to go nice and early. We were allowed access to the room earlier and also secured a late check out free of charge. That's excellent service.

liked that it was centrally located, disliked- was told there was car parking on website but its off site and has limited spaces so we couldn't have out car close by.

Our suite was very good - big, attractive and spacious with a nice view over the very good pool to the harbour with all its activity. We ate n the restaurant and although perhaps it lacks in ambience for a pricier venue, the food was excellent. There were no complaints about any of the choices from our group of five. The staff at the hotel were friendly and professional and contributed to an enjoyable stay.

The main reasons I like to stay at this hotel are the view from the Harbourside rooms and the location on the water with boardwalks and restaurants. The hotel rooms need updating soon, especially the bathrooms. The lobby and restaurant are pleasant and clean but could also do with some modernisation.
