Disappointing at best
Posted Dec 6, 2015 on Hotels
Next time, I'll try a B&B rather than this hotel. (Although it calls itself a "House," it's a big hotel.) I was one of only a few guests during midweek in the off-season. Room was unbearably hot, even though I turned the fan for the heater off; there is no thermostat for each room, unlike other hotels. I had to open wide both windows just to be comfortable enough to sleep. I asked if the heat might be turned down a couple of degrees and was told no. Wifi was out, said they "needed another server," which I found suspicious since this should have been a matter of a router or ISP, not a server issue. Cell reception was basically non-existent unless I stepped out of the hotel. It's nice to have coffee and muffins in the morning, but really, don't let the coffee sit all day and then tell me it's "hot and fresh" when I return in the afternoon, as it obviously was neither. Thankfully, I was on the island and stayed here just two nights. Positives: The young female night clerk who checked me in was very helpful and knowledgable about the area. And the attached restaurant/bar ("The Newes") has very good, reasonably priced food and drinks.
