Great in-town location, with updated comfortable rooms. All contact-less check-in, but good with directions and phone in entry to talk to person. Provided a great list of recommended restaurants and sites to visit/hike nearby, which was much more comprehensive than most hotels. Easy walk to harbour area, and to the waterfall and other local hikes. Bonus was a public washer/dryer just a few blocks up the road.
