Excellent hotel in a great location and good value if you get a deal. Limited parking at a cost. Rooms have a small balcony and we had a fabulous room service breakfast looking out over the bay. Walking distance of lots of pubs and restaurants if you don't want to pay five star prices.

The centre of the city is not really within easy walking distance but the boat trip into town is very handy and well...
