The checkin was smooth and very easy, and the location is fantastic. It is not in town, but is only about a 15 min walk to the banks and shops, so its worth staying here and walking. The rooms are a little dated, but adds to the character of the beach side hotel. The views are amazing, over the bay, and all the sea birds. Breakfast is good, nothing super special, but all you need for a great day out. Make sure to walk the 2 mins to eat at the "Raft" restaurant next door. Really fun place, good food, and friendly locals to chat with.
The wifi is a little slow, and you need to get a new password ever 6 hours, but it is free, so not really an issue.
