We found the Swiss Chalet to be comfortable and suitable for our nights stay. We appreciated having a wine on the deck outside out room. The bed was good and there was no street noise so we both got a good nights sleep.

This is an older style property but very homely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Maureen and Phil were friendly and attentive hosts who made us feel most welcome. The location is great - just a few minutes walk to the harbour, shops and restaurants. Unfortunately we had a full day of rain while we were there, and there's not a lot...

Our 25th wedding anniversary was made even more memorable by the Swiss Chalet. The room was tidy and well appointed with facilities for cooking food and a fridge along with the usual tea and coffee. The deck was a nice extra space to enjoy and the bed and furniture were comfortable. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the...

The rooms are in need of an upgrade but are cosy enough. What does need urgent attention is the water pressure in the shower. It goes off completely during your shower. The other is the free internet connection. I get its free but at peek times there is not enough bandwidth to load a webpage.

Hi Jaynz D, Thank you for your review. We are at a loss as to understand what happened to the water pressure in your room. We have had no complaints, in fact people often remark that our water pressure is great. It would have helped if you had told us about what was happening at the time you stayed with...

We really loved staying at the Swiss Chalet. Our apartment was two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies on the upper floor and was just lovely. Very high ceilings, felt very spacious and airy. Looks much bigger than other motels in two . Heating worked well. Located just off the Main Street so very close to walk to restaurants but avoiding...

We enjoyed our time at the Swiss Chalet! A great place - close to the shops, beach and restaurants - all just a walk away! The room was comfortable and cosy with a lot of space, great facilities and needed nothing more. Maureen and Phil are excellent hosts and we look forward to going back.
