My partner and I stayed at The Cheshire Cat for one night on our way down the Pacific coast.
The building is a very picturesque one, very well maintained and with a small but well manicured garden. We stayed in the Catarpillar room, which was a bit floral for my tastes, but was clean and smart and had a fantastic balcony overlooking the garden and neighbourhood. The Alice in Wonderland theme was really nice and gave the place a real warmth.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was tasty and varied. There was a chance to chat with fellow guests with a glass of wine and some cheese in the early evening.
The location was very good and although it was a 30 minute walk to the pier, shops and restaurants were within easy walking distance.
