Tiffany and Michael were excellent and very helpful. All of the staff were very warm and welcoming. The small touches were very nice such as the bed turn down and the care taken with our room.
Better knowledge of events and excursions. Such as better availability to time tables.
Loved the wine and cheese tasting.
We loved the breakfast and the happy hour. The bed linens are wonderful. The luggage storage on checkin and out is great.
Just a lovely hotel. Garden was quiet and lovely-made it private even though the hotel was located on the main drag. Loved the breakfast and wine and cheese reception. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very easy to get to.
I love this hotel :) very friendly staff. Very nice and clean ! Love thebreakfast and also the wine and cheese tasting included with stay. :)
The staff was very friendly and helpful upon checking in. My room was not ready, but they called me on my cell when it was. Air-conditioning was great. My ex-wife used to tell me I was like Mamu the Killer Whale. If the temperature was not perfect in the room...well, then I would expire!
The lamps on either side of the bed were very hard to turn on/off. Just a tiny little knob that would not budge unless I went and got a wash cloth and REALLY cranked it on/off. I read before going to sleep and the lamps help a lot.
The staff are friendly and accommodating.
The bathroom may need some updating.
I wanna go back !
I loved the complementary breakfast and the wine and cheese tasting at 4:30pm :)
Love this hotel every time we stay there! They have a wonderful wine and cheese happy hour and delicious breakfast that's included. Best location, toasty fire pit, friendly and extremely helpful staff. We leave our bags there while waiting for the ferry after we check out, and we can even take a shower after a day of hiking since they have shower rooms near the front desk!
Nothing at all!
