8/10 Very good

This hotel is almost perfect! 8.5/10
The hotel is pretty outdated and it is really small in the room. It is outdated in terms of the exterior and interior. However, it has a great view of the water, and mountain.

10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely loved our 10 night stay at this hotel. Stunning location, beautiful views from our room and the dining/breakfast room. Very easy to get around from here. Everything is within walking distance. And the tours pick up from here and neighbouring hotels. Airport bus stops outside the hotel. The breakfast is truly amazing. Everything and a lot more available. And all quality ingredients. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Have tried to think of something negative for balance, but there isn't anything. Wouldn't hesitate to return here.

The rooms were clean and comfortable with a beautiful view. The staff were amazing and so helpful for a member of our group who had injured themselves, finding a mobility chair so we could still explore the town. Our stay would not have been the same without them.
