Beautiful location, but a tired looking hotel in need of a good revamp. Room security was a concern. Bedding was old and the bed and pillows very uncomfortable. Buffet breakfast was included and well worth it.

A wonderful stay at the Halyards Hotel, very safe and enough to do for both young and old. We went fishing at all the mouths and really enjoyed every moment. We will surely go back again.The breakfast was delicious and a wide variety.

Spacious rooms and beautiful view to the lake, enjoyable ride on the lake with access to the sea and the river while giving exposure to the iconic bridge that you always cross in driving through the town.

A nice stay at this hotel. Very comfortable beds and a wonderful breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dinner waitress was lethargic and slow. Menu offers no healthy options for children, though our burger and chips tasty. This hotel feels a little shabby and past it's best but all was clean and working.

Halyards is well positioned and child friendly. Unfortunately the pool is open to the public which leaves guests of the hotel sitting on benches instead of having preference to loungers. The rooms are spacious but not well maintained. The bathrooms are very small. The car park is close to the rooms so you hear everything. The breakfast is reasonable. It's...
