Only annoyance was a shower enclosure the leaked large quantities of water onto the bathroom floor. Nice roof top bar.

We only stayed two nights but the hotel was beautiful and the staff was helpful and friendly. It is about 5 min. from the port and right in front of the bus depot, in a busy part of town but great for getting places. The food was great in both restaurants! Would definitely stay there again.

Best things about this hotel are the location when arriving or departing on either bus or ferry. The hotel is right there when you get off the bus and directly across the road from the ferry. The hotel itself is nice and very quiet (at least when we were there) and the ladies at reception were very pleasant and friendly....
