Reviewed 5 August 2014

Our room was spacious and it was great to have a full kitchen at our disposal. The staff at the hotel were all wonderful. We loved the location a block and half from the beach, and the beach chairs and towels provided by the hotel made it a daily walk. While I have seen reviews which state this is not worthy of a 4 star rating because it is not luxurious, all the amenities of this place definitely add up to a 4 star rating. We can not wait to come back!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a kitchen. The convenience of not always having to eat out definitely made our tr...

Ended up here at the last minute due to other hotels bring sold out. Staff is helpful and friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. The palm tree in the courtyard provides wonderful shade and a great place to relax in between adventures. Our private patio area is full of beautiful plants. Would certainly stay here again.

From the rentable bikes to the outdoor garden seating areas to the breakfast "baskets," what is not to like?! Our room was quite cozy but comfortable. There are differing accommodations within this well kept property. Parking is available, but tight. Clean and refreshed with some mid century touches remaining. Friendly staff. Near waterfront and walk ability to eateries. Appreciated the large coffee stash and glassware in the room!

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable two nights at this wonderful spot.
The accommodation was first class - large bed/sitting room, fully equiped kitchen with eating area, good sized bathroom.
There was a lovely basket of goodies - fruit, biscuits, cake etc....
The staff were first class - even helped us book tickets for a James Taylor concert.
Cannot recommed this place too highly - would love to go back.

Loved this place, lovely room, bathroom a bit small, but a full blown kitchen if you need it.

Spotlessly clean and a lovely comfortable bed, but the star prize has to go to the lady who checked us in, so friendly and helpful, even told us we could borrow bikes and beach chairs etc.

Fantastic service, pity we were only staying one night :-(

This is a very clean and hospitable place right by the beach! The staff is exceptional and it is very cost effective. It is seconds from all of the hot spots and I would go back many times! You can also rent beach cruisers!
