Family Road Trip

Hi I would definitely recommend this hotel. The location is perfect right on the waterfront and it is wonderful being able to watch the sea otters from the hotel. We had lunch and dinner here and both were delicious.

Vue très sympa sur la baie... avec des jumelles à dispositions pour observer les phoques. Chose à revoir : au restaurant les chaises ne sont vraiment pas top, on dirait des chaises de plage... et nous étions serré, la serveuse n'arrivait presque pas à passer entre notre table et celle d'à côté...

fabelhaftes Hotel in Top Lage für Paare und Familien

Sehr guter Service beginnend beim Parken über den Check in, zur Gepäckbeförderung durch den Concierge mit vielen Tipps zur Region und zum Hotel, weiterhin eine sehr hochwertige Küche zu einem sehr guten Preis Leistungsverhältnis. Ein fantastischer Ausblick beim Frühstück ist garantiert. Wir hatten sogar das Glück Delphine, Seehunde und einen Otter vom Frühstückstisch zu beobachten. Alles in allem jederzeit gerne wieder.
