Great holiday hotel!
Fantastic 100 year old hotel with all modern amenities. Stayed for a week with my wife, the staff are attentive and friendly, we used the restaurant and bar, great food, if a little pricey. The pool area, with a swim up bar was great, once we requested the pool heat to be turned on. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Historic Hotel!
This hotel was absolutely beautiful! Across the street from the beach and walking distance to Pleasure Pier. My kids and I used their complimentary bikes to ride about the island.The staff are all very friendly and helpful - especially Kenya, she was awesome! The food was delicious and I loved the piano and bass music in the lobby/lounge. The pool and hot tub were great. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again!
