    Great for our purposes. Pretty basic but clean and warm. Really welcoming staff who took the time to show us around despite the busy time when the ferry arrives and all come to check in at once. Kitchen/lounge had a great vibe.

    Staff were helpful and accommodating, facilities exacting what you would expect, free Wi-Fi and close to local transport hub as well as the local takeaways. A little noisey at times which is expected. Once again great staff made the trip
