We have stayed at this hotel twice, once in 2015 and once earlier this year. Last year we had a small room overlooking the harbour, we stayed 2 nights, we both had very sore backs both morning we rose, the bed was worn out. We had a really nice breakfast the first year and friends who live on the Island...

We found out after booking our stay that the restaurant was closed. In fact when we arrived it seemed that most of the hotel was on shut down. My husband called the front desk to get the password for the WiFi and was told that if he had any further questions to look in the binder that is in our...

Clean, outdated hotel with terrible wireless on the 10th floor. Room 1008 was a nice and large with a beautiful harbour view. We enjoyed our stay. Need better coffee in the room. No airconditioning. Glad we could open the windows and run ceiling fans. Room was great value.

This hotel was unbelievably bad. The rooms were small and looked like they'd never been renovated. We were a large group of people and had booked online on Booking.com. The number of hilarious and awful events that occurred were amazing. I'll let the facts speak for themselves: 1. Two guests were locked out of their room. 2. Another group was...

We checked in - the reception area was bright and clean looking and the young lady at the desk super friendly and efficient. She checked us into one of their "best" rooms at a high price however since we did not have reservations and it was getting late we decided to go for it! Bad move! We had a second...

We spent a restless first night in the "Annex" an add- on part of the original hotel due to noise generated by a group of young women partiers into the wee hours. The front desk staff Daniel was very kind and upgraded us to an airy room overlooking Ganges Harbour for our second night. The hotel has been undergoing renovations...

Have to start off saying I got the last room that was pet friendly on a crazy busy weekend, so I didn't have a great view like the front rooms... The room was very clean, super comfortable beds and pillows though. Front desk staff was very fun and helpful. I think I'd like to go back next year when the...

So here's an honest review as that's what I look for when searching for accommodation. In a nutshell, our stay was OK but certainly didn't warrant the price we paid. First of all, although the property has a lot of potential, it needs some major updates...everywhere! We had a spacious room with two queen beds but everything was so old...

We were attracted by a website promising "farm to table" restaurant, an attached organic farm and spectacular setting. One week before our reservation we received confirmation along with a note explaining that the restaurant was temporarily closed. It was already too late to book anywhere else. On arrival we found: a closed restaurant, a room overlooking the parking lot on...
