Pre-ferry layover on the motorbike
The hotel looked newly refurbished, room was very clean, fresh and comfortable. Dining facilities were pleasant. Precautions had clearly been taken in light of COVID and worked very well - very safe. The staff were what stood out to us though; the young chap on the desk (and organising the restaurant for breakfast) was a credit to this hotel. Very friendly, professional and eager to help! 10/10, would stay here again.
