8/10 Very good

The property and the rooms are beautiful, the breakfast they offer has a lot of variety and was delicious. The only thing to note, because it’s in an older building you can hear a lot of stomping if you have rooms above you. One night it was extremely loud while we were there. Also another thing to note, they do have an elevator but it’s only once you walk up a steep flight of stairs to get to the first floor. So keep that in mind if you bring heavy luggage you will need to bring it up 1 flight up steps.

Perfectly positioned, lovely property
This is a lovely hotel in a perfect position on the harbor. We had a room with the harbor view and balcony and absolutely loved it. A lovely refurb of an old building. Great restaurant advice from the team - we ate at their recommendations several times. Only minor improvement opportunities if I had to be critical - its a big room, could have fit a king size bed easily instead of the queen and the bathroom sink has an auto on off so hard to get consistent running water at the right temperature. Definitely not deal breakers!

Boutique hotel in the middle of the port area. Walk to all. Very good breakfast. Outstanding staff - very helpful. In spite of being in a busy area, room was quiet. Modern styling and amenities in a very old building. Lots and lots of nearby restaurants.
