The hotel is what you would expect for the price, which is at the low end. We are travelling long-term and need budget accommodation; this suited our requirements. It is well located on the main road and is surrounded by good places to eat a few minutes drive in either direction.
Our room (130) has a lovely view of the water behind with lots of interesting bird life. The room itself was a large family size room with two queen beds and an en suite bathroom. Free WiFi, a fridge, TV and a very welcome (if a little noisy) air conditioning/heating unit as it was quite chilly for late April!
Understandable that outdoor pool is out of action being off season but it would it would have been nice if we'd known the indoor pool and spa pool were also out of action. Breakfast was basic but free. Friendly staff and overall good value.

I liked seeing and hearing the characters speak and answer questions about what pilgrim like is like. Dave thought it was hokey.

I peeked in the activity area and the stockings we hung from the chimney with care and the Christmas tree was ready for the ornaments. I’m bummed. I’m going to miss Christmas, because we’ll be touring Boston with an old friend (but that will be wonderful, ...
