There are many options for staying at this inn. There are rooms at the main hotel and then few out buildings each with 2 floors of rooms. Those rooms on the water have amazing views, even though interfered by the occasional cruise ship. Continental breakfast is included with your stay. Decent to start the day. The fruit was only "ok". They had an assortment of "homemade" muffins, bagels breads, yogurt, cereal , etc. They also had hard-boiled eggs. You could get coffee to go, in very tiny cups. Can't speak for the spa, but the gym was tiny with just a handful of machines and a few weights. It is a very easy and quick walk to the heart of the town. Rooms were nice but nothing over the top and did come with a mini fridge. The main hotel was classic and the restaurant was nice and up-scale. The main lounge was ok. It had a piano player at night. Was surprise at them not having drought beer. If you want to be near the water, this is the place to be.

The location is perfect, it's right on the water and right downtown. The views from our ocean front room were breathtaking. The accommodations were nice as well, our room was very clean and comfortable. It even had a little outdoor porch to enjoy the sea air at night! Probably the nicest feature is its proximity to all of the bars, restaurants, and shops in the area!

We stayed 3 nights in a ocean front room. The view was amazing and ground was well kept. The room was clean but it was little dated. Their continental breakfast was really good. All the bake goods were so good, especially the pistachio muffins. The breakfast area looks out to the ocean. You could sit outside. The front desk messed up out bill. I called a year in advance to book over the phone because the online was not available for the date. When I checked in, they charged me at a higher rate. I showed them the email confirmation so the manager fixed it. We didn't know they serve cookies in the hotel lobby in the evening. When we came in there were only one cookie left. My husband asked the front desk. They gave us a full plate to bring back to our room. It was very nice of them. We also dined at the Reading Room restaurant, and the Grill restaurant outside. The food was good and great service. They had live pianist played in the Reading Room at dinner. I would like to come back one day.

We stayed at room 115, inside the main building. The view is terrific, especially early in the morning, we got a great view of nearby islands and the cliffs covered in snow. They have a fireplace in the room, with everything you need. The staffs are super nice and informative, and the shop inside has 75% discount on all drinks.
