Nice hotel
Easy access to our daily meeting place. Friendly staff. Limited breakfast offerings. Comfortable rooms and beds. Challenges with checkout and paying for a room we cancelled prior to arrival. took care of us. Hotel was demanding payment. This will probably change our minds about returning on our next trip.

10/10 Exceptional

Cet hôtel est très confortable. La terrasse de la chambre avec vue sur mer est très agréable. Il est très accessible à pied du centre ville mais quand même assez éloigné pour être au calme. Au niveau environnemental, les draps et serviettes pourraient être moins changés (fait tous les jours). Le petit déjeuner est inégal en fonction des personnes présentes et de l’heure, même si on trouve toujours de quoi se nourrir. Cela a été appréciable de pouvoir le prendre très tôt pour un départ en ferry. Globalement, cet hôtel est une très bonne adresse à recommander.
