Clean and comfortable, with kitchenette and washing machine and dryer. Staff were helpful from booking tours, they even had my room ready early after I contacted them as I arrived early. The place was walking distance from shops and cafes.

The suite was clean, neat and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay there again, in a heartbeat!! They were able to book tours and events for us. It is close to downtown and the beach and still quiet.

Is this place luxury, I'm not sure, however it met our needs perfectly. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights in November. We arrived after closing at 6.30pm but it was no hassle, you press the intercom, Kay or Donovan answers, they direct you to your room and you do all the booking in the following morning.... More

We stayed here for four nights. First, the innkeepers were totally accommodating - printed documents from emails even before we asked them to do so, had restaurant cards to recommend so we didn't have to write down. The rooms were spacious, with living room double doors opened to courtyard. Very comfortable beds. Daily milk replenishing in fridge, in-unit washer/dryer. Great... More
