I booked a room with ensuite and was pleasantly surprised as it was better than expected for the price, good value for money! The room was clean, the bed was super comfy and there was ample room in the bathroom (not pokey). The room also had a fridge and microwave and electric jug, along with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk (which was replenished during my stay). The room was warm (heat pump) and had a tv although I didn't watch it.
All the staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. They will lock your bag safely away while you explore the town until it's check-in time, which was helpful.
The location is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! Right beside the main wharf where boat trips and cruises leave from, lots of bars, restaurants and cafes and a big grassy area in the park like area by the lake. There is always something to see from here, be it jet boats leaving or para sailing, along to the Steamship TSS Earnslaw leaving or arriving.
The kitchen in this place is big, clean and has amazing views over the lake with mountains as a backdrop.
LOVED this place and I will definitely be staying there again!
