The location is close enough to the ferry to make it an easy walk. It IS a little funky to look at the streets as you leave the ferry area. The hotel is adequate. Not much around it but who spends time near the hotel...More
The guesthouse is centrally located, right by the harbor and in close proximity to several supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, and shops. For people travelling without a car it would be reasonable to roll your suitcase from the ferry to the guesthouse.

Great location adjacent to the ferry terminal and local supermarkets and restaurants. Very quiet. Very clean. Big rooms. Good buffet breakfast with lots of selection. Helpful receptionist. No complaints.

I have secured two rooms for June 12th to the 13th. We know your hotel is great and close to the ferry. We are thrilled to be staying there.
One of the most important things for us to do is see the elephant rock. Is there a tour to the rock or can it just be seen from the ferry on our way over? We would like to have the time to photograph it? We are seniors and wont be doing rock climbing.
