We had pre- booked one night at this hotel as a treat after a 2 day South Coast Tour. Because we actually saw the Northern Lights on our return journey we arrived at the Hotel about 1am. Saturday night reception were friendly but we were disappointed that there was no facility, except for a vending machine, for a beverage and snack. "The bar was just closing". It was disappointing to wake next morning to see the view that we had paid extra for was a rusty old ship that was almost parked on our verandah - don't waste your money expecting to see any water views! The hotel decor is interesting and quirky but you can experience all of this on the ground floor as a restaurant visitor. Translucent bathroom walls partition the shower and toilet off the bedroom. We had the Sunday buffet breakfast. Although we arrived half an hour before finishing time, the buffet was not restocked. Therefore, I would recommend that you make a selection of ALL foods that you might like in the next hour. There were no cakes or pastries left and the fruit was very diminished - when I asked about this I was told the kitchen was closed and the staff had finished. Another recommendation is to ensure that Reception submits your name when booking the shuttle transport for the airport. We waited nearly an hour for this confusion to be sorted out ! We had stayed 3 nights at another small city centre boutique hotel for half the cost per night before our South Coast Tour so our expectations were very high for this "waterfront" location and "brand name" hotel. Unfortunately, they were not met. We had a wonderful 6 night stop over in Iceland though and these "issues" did not spoil our experience !
