This hotel is located right on the bay overlooking the sea and we loved the sea facing room that we got. It was the right season for the whales and we did spot a couple from the huge window in our room.
We got the room on the second floor and it was spacious and neat. The ground floor rooms had more or less the same view but had a nice sit out which I think is a plus point. Plus there is no lift so if you are going with elders who have difficulty climbing up, its better to ask for the ground floor rooms.
Bathroom was also big and neat but we had some problems with the flush. There was a terrible sound every time we flushed which would continue for a long time. The wash basin had no hot water which was a major inconvenience. There was however hot water in the shower.
The breakfast was a very nice spread. The reception staff and well as the other staff were very helpful. The hotel has a nice back entrance which leads you into a street full of shops which was very useful. Overall it was a good hotel in a great location.
