Bellwether could use a bit of a face-lift when it comes to the rooms, but overall it's a beautiful area to stay at.

This was a repeat stay, after a great experience a couple of years ago. Still a lovely property, COVID has impacted the wide menu in the dining room, but still great food in the bar. Felt safe and comfortable.

You can't beat the views at the Bellwether. It's worth the extra cost to get a bayview room. The little balconies are just perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are big and bright.
