Booked a room for my brother and fiancé as it was her birthday. The room was lovely with a great view. They had booked breakfast for 10am, however waited 45 mins for them to be served with the wrong order, so they had to take it back. They had to request a later check out as was 11am however just getting breakfast about then. This spoiled things and feel really disappointed as it was meant to be a lovely treat away with no kids.

Lovely place, modern & bright. Free parking & right on the shoreline. Rooms were fabulous & the bath tub was huge. Lots of nice touches within the room to make it feel more homely. Restaurant was nice with food selection of food on offer... it appears that lots of locals just walk in to use the restaurant too... always a good sign. Only down side was the walls are thin... next door had their TV on so loud but at least they turned it down at 10pm.
