    Perfect location to town, 10 minute walk to Ferry terminal. Old fashioned and traditional decor. Nice breakfast and pleasant staff. Only disappointment, was the shower. Literally took 10 minutes for water to heat up and the water flow was poor.

    Thank you for your review we're sorry the water flow was poor but as you stayed for 2 nights you should have mentioned it earlier and we could have got it sorted while you were here
