This property looked beautiful on photographs but sadly they must be taken some years ago as it was in major need of a full renovation inside and out. The view was beautiful overlooking the water but you could not stand out as the balconies were rotted and unsafe and they had been completely blocked due to this. Carpets were stained, Lino ripped in bathroom and really the place needs a complete renovation. Windows rotting old dirty walls really cannot go by the pictures and I was quite disappointed as I've stayed in other best western hotels that have been outstanding
