    Stayed four nights at the Sir Francis Drake Inn. Very spacious room, very comfortable and quiet. The only disappointment was the carpet, the light coloured carpet shows the marks, and there's a lot to see. Needs a good clean. Otherwise a very comfortable stay.More

    A pleasant overnight stop was needed, and provided. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The meal at the restaurant was very tasty. Complimentary Continental breakfast was included. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A little hiccup with the aircon, was quickly attended to.
