Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Lovely spa facilities, clean and in good working order. Breakfast was delicious and veggie, vegan and gluten free options available. Room was clean and tidy with adequate facilities. Room cleaning was done daily during our stay. We had a super time staying here given all of this and the location, close to key areas of Portsea Island. Well worth the money we paid and we would stay again.

The hotel was great value especially as it has leisure facilities. The location is a bit of a walk into town but okay for us. Room was small but comfortable. Bathroom was very small but shower was excellent..
