We had some lovely extra touches like water on a silver tray and Netflix on our TV to name a couple. The breakfasts were delicious and when I told them...

We booked to stay 3 nights. We had to cancel our trip due to a death in the family. We made numerous attempts, well before our booked dates, to reach the hotel. No one ever answered the phone and no one returned our messages. And, no one responded to our later emails. Almost the full price of our booking was...

I stayed here for 3 nights. I was welcomed by Daniel when I checked in and greeted by Katherine next morning. The breakfast was awesome all three morning and Katherine told about surroundings and recommended places to go. It's about 10 minutes driving distance from harbour front so location is also good. I read review about parking. Yes, parking is...

Good breakfast, great internet, fairly clean room but a little on the noisy side. The Artist Room is located near/next to the owners quarters and could here conversations, cleaning of dishes and music but all was quiet by 9pm. Glasses would have been nice to have in the room. Good price but is outside of the city. Traffic was awful...
