Wonderful historic property, crazy cobbled paths.

Good location, close to all major malls. STUNNING views of the harbour. Grounds beyond beautiful. This property is equipped with wheelchair elevators in main building. Be prepared to march up and down many flights of very steep stairs to access main buildings/pool/restaurants/lobby, which is a great workout for those in good physical shape. Outlying condo buildings secured with locking gates. Kitchenette well equipped and lovely, really helped save budget to make breakfast/lunch in room. Room needs new caulking (not just patched) and tub faucet in bathroom and definitely a new sofa bed (broken springs/loud squeeking). TV could be better, very fuzzy reception, but free WIFI made up for it. No charge to park rental vehicle. LOVED balcony overlooking water/harbour.
Pool bar restaurant and Patio restaurant great, excellent service, really good food. Room with a View Restaurant left us disappointed, long wait for meal, food items were of great quality, tasty hot entree but icy cold side vegetables, (mashed spuds cold, really?) Best service by gentleman bussing the tables who does a fabulous Louis Armstrong impersonation. Mandatory tip for NYE was 20%...didn't even get water refills from waiter and had to remind him of (included) champagne, which was given to every other table - waiter only had 15 patrons including our party of 3 at that point, so really, no excuse, perhaps some re-training or smaller service area would be beneficial here. Hope tip went to busboy.
