Stay Here!!!
Fantastic place near the ferry. We stayed only one night while passing through-wish we would have been able to stay longer. Alistair, is a fantastic host, met us for check in, made us an amazing breakfast, and was very nice. We enjoyed the breakfast conversation. The wifi was good, the bed comfortable and parking on the street was easy in November. Thank you Alistair..
