    Great location. Amazing people. I was worried about staying with kids but they were great with them. The kids loved the theater room, the games in the lounge, the tennis courts and the colouring. We didn't want to leave.

    We loved the basket of fresh eggs at breakfast & really appreciated the lift to the ferry terminal. Thanks guys! Great fish & chip shop just down the road.

    The lovely Canadian guy who greeted me as soon as I arrived was awesome. Couldn’t have asked for better service. No issues with parking and only a short walk to the bus/train station and city centre. Everything was bright, beautiful, clean and homely, with top facilities and all the essentials. The plants were an amazing touch and made the place feel alive and warm (I love my plants so this was just the bees knees). Waking up to a buzzing yet chilled out atmosphere, where the kitchen and dining room were in full swing, really made the lower level feel like a lil cafe with a twist. Breakfast was great; had a huge selection to fit anyone’s needs and the chef was busy making fresh omelettes for the guests. Definitely not a backpackers in my books, more of a social hotel which was priced really well. I genuinely enjoyed my stay, it was super. Thank you all, and keep up the amazing work. I’ll definitely be back here again in the future for sure! :)
