Street and room noise. Expensive but room itself poor quality older sheets a tear. The public spa was a disaster towels food no water . Monday staff were using heavy machinery to clean outside all morning but I only had that morning to rest. Also tried to check in at 3pm and they told me I had to wait until 4pm!
Arrived by motorcycle. Staff was very helpful in accommodating parking for our bikes. They upgraded our room to a King with a better view. Restaurant at the hotel was nice. Very friendly staff. Overall a great experience.
It was a little pricey.
Lovely friendly staff, we were given lots of information about the area at check in. Hired complimentary bikes and used the shuttle service. Room was very comfortable and clean. Close to the wharf area and lots of restaurant and shops close by. Would recommend this hotel.
