Well what can I say that hasnt been said already?!
This is THE BEST hotel I have ever stayed at.
The rooms are very good with extremely comfortable beds. Clean, crisp sheets that you know beyond doubt are fresh. Very clean room including the carpet which all too often leaves you with black feet (YUK) in other establishments.
The pool is fantastic, the views are out of this world and the free breakfast is excellent (even better if you take it out of the dark breakfast room and eat it back at your room). There are fruit, bagels, pastries, muffins etc and all the usual beverages. It is all very fresh and really tasty!
The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. This is our 2nd stay here and we just love it so much! If I had a motel/hotel I would try to model it on this one. If you stay here you will not be sorry and I wonder what sort of person couldnt like it here!
I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone although I wonder if it will get so popular I wont be able to get in when I next want a room! It really is that good.
My only small downside is that there is no iron. I really cant say anything else negative at all!
They do charge for internet but its $10 for your entire stay or $2 for 20 mins on their own computer in the lobby. Its not exactly unreasonable although I always go to a library for email anyway.
We stayed in room 210 which is above the lobby on the 2nd floor. It has very clearly recently had a nice new bath and I noticed there were workman updating 2 of the ground floor rooms while we were there. The owners must take a pride in the hotel and its very easy to see.
Online booking would be a plus in the future.
Thankyou Kon Tiki!!
