Located right above ferry terminal. An old building with no lift so make sure your bags are light if you have an upstairs room. Love the shower, the best one I've had on my 3 week holiday. Bit disappointed as not many dinner options available in town due to low season and minimal and not many options there anyway.

The hotel building is old, but the room decor has been renovated and is modern with all regular features. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for evening meals, but it was low season. Breakfast was adequate, but due to tariff we expected more. There is a laundry that is available for no additional charge, that we utilised. This...

The room did not have the telephone and the wifi was not accessible from the bedroom....

We booked in for the nice seafront views, however with so much to do on the island, we didn't spend much time in the room. There is no lift, however the reception is happy to lug the suitcase upstairs. The room is nice enough, the kettle is quite dirty on the inside. They don't provide instructions about the housekeeping, so...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a package we did on the Island. Ferry drop off right at your front door which allowed us to settle in straight away without too much driving after our early flight. Location & amenities are within walking distance for shops, restaurants etc. We had a front room on the road with...
