We had a good time. Place is older then expected, but nice and clean. Easy to reach and service is very helpful and friendly. Would come back, but most likely my age will hinder me.Restaurants close by are very good. Peter J. Lueck and Family.

The room we were given was small and drab, with no windows, had 2 single beds, and not even a dressing table. I asked for a room with a double bed and was shown a room even smaller than ours.

Very nice cosy room for a traveller. It was affordable for a one night business stay. Service and welcoming was warm and friendly. The full breakfast was also top class. I will definitely recommend for business stays.

Very friendly and accommodating staff, even went the extra mile to pack a breakfast for me when I had to leave early one morning. The room had a nice view, looking down over Strand and Gordons Bay. I will definitely use this venue on future business and personal trips.

I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay again. Rocco was most obliging again when he prepared a delicious breakfast for me early in the morning when i had to leave earlier than the scheduled breakfast time. Gail was warm and welcoming. They really do go the extra mile!! Thank you.

I reviewed this establishment before, thought I should go back and see if anything had been done to better the service. absolutely nothing has been to improve service of make it more welcoming or even a tab comfortable. everything about this place is very basic.
