Our room was very comfortable, well planned with everything we'd need to have a comfortable stay. We were only there one night but could easily accommodate the whole family for an extended holiday. A short walk from Thompson Avenue it's very convenient too. We'll certainly be back!!!

Hot water ran out!

Good experience staying here but the hot water ran out after a spa so my husband had a cold shower! We didn't even fill the spa much- about half way. Otherwise a clean place to stay- close to the Main Street and beach.
