This hotel was located directly across from the Starline ferry docks that we used to get to the island. They were able to hold our bags while we explored until our room was ready for check in. There was an indoor pool, but we did not try it out. We did, however, try the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at...

We enjoyed our visit. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, our room had not been vacuumed there were crackers on the floor in the sitting area. There was only one remote so we were having to share it back and forth. I would have liked an additional lock on the door up higher so my grandson couldn't just turn...

We had another great stay at the Lake View. The kids love the pool and our room was very nice and well kept. Love sitting on the porch and watch the world go by, and waking up in the morning to the sound of the horses clip clipping by is music to my ears.

Staff was very helpful in arranging horse taxis and recommending unique locations on the island to see. Central location made arrival and check out very easy. Staff handled all luggage transfers from ferry with no hassles.

Spa bath was extremely loud and shower was tiny. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Continental breakfast was a bit of a gimmick, as there was really nothing more than bread and fruit. For an up charge, you can have a small omelette.

Beautiful island, you even get used to the urine smell in a day or two. Recommended for a a 2-3 day getaway. We had bad luck with the weather, it rained pretty much the whole first day. Still, we managed to do the island tour, get to the pretentious Grand Hotel, buy some fudge, and generally kick back for a...
