The Good
Guests who rated this hotel online usually had a comfortable and pleasant stay.

Guests typically enjoyed their rooms. They were described as clean, quiet and spacious with comfortable beds. Guests found the rooms that faced the courtyard quieter than those that faced the street, and guests with renovated rooms were more enthusiastic about them.

Guests often mentioned the staff in reviews and invariably said something good. They were characterized as professional, welcoming, friendly and helpful. One guest said, "The staff are great and easy to deal with."

Several reviewers found the location central and convenient for accessing the beach, shopping and restaurants on foot and the ferry via the hotel's shuttle service.

Recent guests were well pleased with meals on site. TC's pub, the restaurant and the free breakfast were all mentioned favourably in the reviews. One guest reported, "The free breakfast was a continental style. I think the muffins were homemade and it included hard boiled eggs or little cheese omelettes as well as toast and bagels, cereals, fruit and juice. The food in the pub was good too!"

Wi-Fi was rated as excellent overall by online reviewers.

The Bad
Guests who complained about the hotel were in the minority, in the reviews that were read for this analysis.

A frequent complaint about the hotel was voiced by guests who were given a more dated room than the ones they had seen pictured online. The hotel does have renovated rooms and older rooms, and renovations are ongoing. 

These same guests also felt the older, tired rooms with polyester blankets, old TVs and loud heaters were not worth the room price being charged. Occasionally guests that were assigned newer, upgraded rooms, also judged them too expensive for what was offered.

A few guests said the courtyard also looked tired and could do with a sprucing up.
