      It was relaxed and efficient,

      It is a little expensive for what you get, The rooms are a little tight on space as is the bathroom.

      Close proximity to the town centre and also to the transport facilities, 5 minutes walk from the station, the ferries and the town centre. Good location next to the aquarium, tourist information centre but despite it's closeness to all facilities is very quiet.

      My only slight concern, mirrored by my three colleagues, was the rather inefficient shower door which seemed to lead to an awful lot of water getting onto the bathroom floor.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      Being able to walk from the hotel to a great variety of restaurants, cultural interest, shops etc. Hotel was smart, clean and friendly. Having a car part and being able to walk everywhere was a definitely plus.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      Great location next to aquarium and a few minutes walk from Old Port restaurants etc. Internet is free and parking too. Easy to find if you follow "Aquarium" signs.

      Room and bathroom on the small size but adquate.

      The location and comfortable beds

      The hotel room was set out for a one night stay and a bit expensive for what we got. Eating at the hotel was to expensive as well

      • Average rating
    • Group of friends

      I liked the close proximity of the hotel to all the local amenities.

      I enjoyed the breakfast, taken only once, but found it rather expensive.

    • Older travelers

      The location was ideal for our purpose. We like the view from the restaurant and the way the staff responded to our requests.

      Central location. Helpful staff. Great breakfast. Good value. This was the only hotel to offer twin beds instead of doubles.

      • Average rating
    • Single

      The staff were helpful and friendly. Having secure parking facilities a great benefit. A standard room with double bed was fine for me as a single occupant. However, for two people I imagine the room size might feel on the small side.
