Loved the location, a lot to look at with the Port and people walking, boats arriving, logging etc (if you like that sort of thing), overlooking the old buildings where the freezing works were. Generally the staff were very pleasant if a bit laid back. A little more attention to details would not go astray, renew tissues that ran out, asked for another tea towel (I don't expect them to do the dishes - filled the dishwasher), a basic item, toilet brush not there. They are very eco friendly which is great but sometimes a bit of dishwashing liquid would help when you have fried something! Beds done, towels renewed but little things missed (one of the previous half empty shampoo bottles in the corner not picked up), Americans would probably complain for the price. Also my Sunday papers which I had not finished with, 'disappeared', not put out as rubbish.. Reception was OK but not over helpful in inquiring if everything was OK (especially when trying to access computer). Overall was quite happy with the atmosphere but unfortunately the younger generation need a lot of training to meet the standard nowadays (I know it is only a small town). Don't want to complain unnecessarily but for someone that seldom has the luxury of a few nights away, it is nice when people show they care. Also would have been nice to have been asked if we wanted a paper in the morning, on inquiring the answer was 'they go quickly, would be a good idea to pay the night before. Unfortunately the service of the past is a bit hard to come by nowadays. One other things, there were painters in the opposite room (rarely painting, more rest breaks than I have ever seen before) and the odour of the paint was quite overwhelming, perhaps that could be done 'out of season'.
