3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
The room was fine... I checked in at approximately 22:00... I brought my knapsack in and settled in for the evening to rest to catch the ferry in the a.m. Unfortunately, the T.V. did not work and the front desk clerk was not there 15 minutes later and the door was locked... so no T.V. which I really didn't mind because I was so tired, but it might bother someone else... the shower was hot and lots of pressure... Perfectly fine place to crash for the evening...

The host was more than helpful. Hard working and a really nice fellow. He has just bought the place and is in the start of renovations so the place needs a little work. It's quite close to the highway so there is some road / traffic noise early in the morning. I would think he will deal with that during the renovation process. Perhaps double glazed windows.

Room #6 did not have heat from the hot water base board in October 2021. Could have and extra fall blanket in room. Room window curtain did not cover/block the outdoor lights on all night. One wall A/C plug share between 4 items either, A/C, fridge, clock radio, and lamp. Front desk friendly and try to be helpful about the lack of room heating.
