A quick nip through to Hickies bar for a relaxing drink after our meal with live music late on finished the day on a high note. We...

It is conveniently located to the bay and many restaurants and is directly over a heavily frequented pub, there was a rugby game on and the place was packed, when we arrived. The owners of the place...

What a wonderful family run hotel, beautifully appointed rooms, excellent bar facility and evening menu, simply wonderful location and staff that could do nothing but offer help to you. The breakfast though was stunning - in the choice that was on offer, not just the usual bacon egg and sausage and that's it. Smoked salmon scrambled eggs, omelettes done to...

The room was lovely with a seating area in the bay window overlooking the water. We had a lovely meal at their Pier Restaurant--the food was delicious. Free parking was available in front on the street or across the street in a lot.
