Lovely hotel that is totally worth the effort to get to. The views are great across the harbour. A cold beer with the view was excellent

We caught the Port to Port boat from Portobello to Careys Bay for lunch. Excellent idea, hope the boat trips are a success. I ordered the smoked salmon cakes, disappointing dish. The cakes very dry, no seasoning, overcooked and not worth the price. My husband...More
