Really lovely hotel, the position on the harbour front with it's own little bay is unique - it was great to get a sundowner cocktail at about 6pm and sit on the bay and watch all the day trip boats return from their day trips. Concierge and Reception staff were brilliant and helped with all the various Covid forms.
