10/10 Exceptional

Superb Value with bonusses!
Very comfortable with attentive service and brilliant view over the harbour and bay. Nice bonus to have a balcony with a view as well. Parking was conveniently on-site and even though on the street, it never felt unsafe. Breakfast was great - never oily and very tasteful, the home-baked muffins superb. Both the manageress and the hard-working chef/waiter/duty manager/cleaner are worth a mention. He seems to be an extraordinary asset to the establishment and I'm embarrassed that I now cannot remember his name. A clean and superb property.

Great service, facilities & views. Loved my stay!
I loved my stay! Wish it was longer. Friendly and helpful staff. Spacious and comfortable room. Good quality bed - loved the decor (light and fresh, not too cluttered). My room had an air-conditioner, but it wasn't hot, so I didn't end up using it. Beautiful view of the harbour and close to Boulders beach and penguins.
