Shame about the mouldy roses in our room. When requested more tea bags(only 1 in room), they brought made tea which we not only had to pay extra for, but had to wait an hour for, and chase twice before it arrived! The swimming pool is very poor and looks nothing like the photo! There is no diving board and it does NOT overlook the harbour! Very tiny. On a plus side, upgraded harbour view rooms are great and the beds are best in the world.
