    Fantastic little hotel in a good location although a bit of a walk to the harbour with a lot of steps. But public transport nearby if you don't want to walk! Clean and friendly. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

    Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
