Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a downstairs room looking over the harbour which was excellent as I am partially disabled. The only things I could criticise are a hot tap that kept dripping no matter how hard you turned it off. The bar service was not great but ok. Staff on reception were excellent and very helpful. We would go again.
