Set on the water front through town. No view of the water from our room but we do see the mountain range which was snow capped and beautiful. The room is large and very comfortable. Microwave, jug , crockery and cutlery all here and a seperate couch to sit on. Very comfy.

"End room very hot in summer months would be great in winter months."
