The view from one of the two front rooms is stunning, opening on to the busy seaport across the promenade.
Double glazing ensures peace even when the ferries are at their busiest. The view is breathtaking on flinging open the windows in the morning to the harbour scene.
The proprietor is an artist whose works adorn all walls in the common space. There are also whimsical small art installations in the corridors utilising ' found objects' attesting to his sense of humour although from the works on the wall, that may be tinged with some darkness.
The breakfasts are modest. A croissant and very good coffee made by the proprietor served with good humour and little English.
Cafes, restaurants and high end shopping is close by as is the high speed ferry wharf. The bus station is around the corner for all routes including the circumferential buses circling the island.
The room is sparse and clean, the hot water mostly reliable but one has to rely on the public internet serving the marina for WiFi.....not always available and requiring one to stand close to the open window.
There is no access to the kitchen for hot water after 10.00 am so no tea making is possible.
We had a great time in a great town not detracted from in any way by lodgingsMore
