Wishing to break up a long drive we decided to stay over, we rang from the car and when we arrived found that we had been upgraded which was appreciated. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Went for a swim and then hit the shower, which was great. Walking distance to town. Staff very helpful and...

We have stayed at Sails from time to time and love it there, the staff are great and the rooms and facilities are exceptional. We will return again and again when in Port. Parking is easy, beautiful grounds, gardens, pool and lounge areas and did I say a fabulous shower.

A very comfortable, spacious, clean, modern room. One doesn't not normally find a motel room so spacious and we have stayed in many. The bed is worth a mention as it was very very comfortable. Well done Sails!!
