A fabulous boutique motel with great service. We used it at the start and end of Great Taste Trail. It is clean, breakfast is continental but plenty of special options if required. Rooms are spacious with plenty of outlets to charge lights ect... A hose awaits at the end of the ride to clean your bikes. A casual 15 min stroll takes you to the city eateries. There is Anchor bar and restaurant next door.

What a wonderful place too stay. Very clean, modern and close to the city centre which is a nice 20 min stroll. Juan and the staff were awesome, and Juan even offered to take us to the Cathedral as the taxi was running late. Definitely a great place to stay.

We had a first floor harbour view room. The view was spectacular. The room was well thought out and had everything we needed. Comfortable chairs for watching TV, bathroom lovely. Immaculately clean. Continental breakfast was a bonus! We would definitely return.
