                      10.0

                      The comfy bed. The owner was most obliging and friendly during our overnight stay.

                      The proximaty to the waterfront, level walking distance, In a sunny position.

                    • Older travelers

                      2.4

                      Spa size.

                      There was still hair in the bathroom. Still coffee in the mugs (not cleaned the room). And when i talked to the owner he said he did not have a cleaner and expects us to not blame him for the lack in hygiene.Meaning he tried to clean it himself before we got to the room.

                      Excellent manager Paul, very nice, kind and helpful! Handy location, convenient but quiet with free wi-fi on reasonable price, good!

                      Upstairs plumbing is too loud.

                      Excellent service Great relaxing hotel especially with the comfortable bed and spa. Extremely convenient location, just a quick walk to the sea side area. Quiet and stress free, retreat style. Great kitchen area to make your own breakfast.

                      Cannot think of anything.

                      Very friendly host. Made us feel welcome to his little corner of the world. Clean and tidy and easy walking distance to shops, clubs and ferry to Russel.

                      8.2

                      The proximity to the beach for the State Ocean Swim Series, the quietness of the street. How Paul the manager allowed us to have a late check out so we could have a shower after the swim, which was most kind because I know how busy the motel was.

                      Paul at receptioin is very friendly and helpful. Full kitchenette is very useful for families. Close to shops and restaurants but off the main drag.
