The hotel works well, the staff are most helpful and friendly. The location is superb. Recommend Beacon Island its good value and I will definitely return. We did not eat dinner at the hotel so I can't really comment about the food.

The above title says it all. The location is idyllic. The room was all we wanted, the weather was perfect and the fact that elderly people like us could share the excellent meals was a huge plus. Thank you B&I
