It ticks all the boxes, Good location, clean rooms, friendly staff and comfortable beds. A short walk will take you to the shops and the wharf where we found good places to eat and drink. The view across the bay is breathtaking

We had a seaview apartment and could make use of the outside table for breakfast. Ideally situated. You can access both pier and downtown shopping stores within some minutes of walking. Room was well equipped, clean and spacious.
