Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service
The room was a step up from a boarding house - guess it wasn't exactly what I expected. The room was very small for four adults. There were people in the lower level/main area talking until midnight which made it very difficult to sleep. The shower door didn't close so when someone showered the room became wet. This is a no frills property to be sure but it is in a very nice location, right on the water. The dining area is very minimal but boy oh boy, had the best food of the trip there for dinner. Exceptional lamb and fish dishes - looked like they were from a 5 star restaurant.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
We were contacted 2 hours prior to check in to be told that they no longer had a room for us and that they were very sorry. They told us they made a reservation at a nearby hotel that was an upgrade. The hotel was NOT an upgrade and was 15 mins further in the opposite direction we were traveling.

We stayed one short night here in order to see the Glacier lagoon and Diamond beach. Those are soooo worth the drive. I hesitated but trust me and don’t miss. The property has multiple options for rooms and we got one right above the main entrance/restaurant/front desk. The walls and thin. It was summer so doesn’t ever get dark and we had no blackout curtain. It was a place to sleep and shower but not super comfy. We ate their breakfast in the morning and it was ok.

The hotel room was nice and the view was great, but the bedsheets were dated and some of them even had holes. The food in the restaurant is okay and overpriced.
